E.M. Johnson Water Treatment Plant Electrical Generator Improvements

Expansion and upgrading of current electrical generation equipment to meet future power generation demands.

Update: Project has moved into Phase 2. The Phase 2 portion includes the construction of a new generator building to house two (2) new electrical generators. Project also includes space for much needed water infrastructure expansion along with additional fuel storage and fuel offloading facilities.

___________________________________________

This project consists of civil site work, drainage improvements, underground power lines, control wiring, switches and electrical manholes. This construction is associated with the relocation of the current electrical utility substation which is located at the water treatment plant to another location on site. This relocation will free up much needed space at the plant in preparation for a future phase that will include the construction of a new generator building to house two new generators. These improvements will meet all future power needs at the plant until 2040.
