Brunswick County Northwest Water Treatment Plant Upgrade Design Update


Brunswick County Northwest Water Treatment Plant Upgrade Design Update

Bolivia, NC – Design for the Brunswick County Northwest Water Treatment Plant upgrade and new concentrate pipeline are advancing on schedule.  The County recently received a favorable response from federal regulators regarding the concentrate discharge to the Cape Fear River stating that it “is not likely to adversely affect species listed as threatened or endangered or critical habitats”.  There remain other approvals to obtain a new NPDES discharge permit and the County continues pursuit for acceptance from all environmental agencies. Review of the discharge permit by DEQ persists as technical questions are promptly addressed by engineers to facilitate permit approval.

The County will be soliciting proposals to pre-qualify potential general contractors and system suppliers of the reverse osmosis equipment. The pre-qualifications process will occur over the next few months and only those deemed qualified will be allowed to bid on the construction for this project.

The next design deliverable is due at the end of July and will represent 90 percent complete drawings and specifications, detailing the proposed work. Final design for all work remains on schedule for completion at the end of September and bids from general contractors to be received before the end of the year. Construction is expected to commence in January of 2020 and the first distribution of water from treatment upgrades is anticipated in December 2021.
