Here's to another Thread Revival!

I finally went out to see what all those cranes were for on West Q and it was this water treatment plant well underway. The Platte West will be the metro's third plant along with the Florence and the Platte South. (The OWH article for the link above has since been removed from their website.)

HDR wrote:The plant will be M.U.D.'s third water treatment facility, adding 100 million gallons of high-quality drinking water to the existing 234 million gallons-per-day (mgd) capacity. The utility serves more than 176,000 customers.

Project components include:

  • A well field with 42 vertical wells capable of supplying 104 mgd.
  • A 72-inch raw water transmission main from the well field to the water treatment plant site in Douglas County, including crossing the Platte River.
  • A water treatment plant, rated for 100 mgd, including lime softening, filtration, disinfection, storage, high service and transfer pumping, solid handling/dewatering, numerous chemical feed systems and administration and maintenance buildings.
  • A 54-inch finished water transmission main connecting to M.U.D.’s Skyline Reservoir.
  • The Platte West Project will take two years to design and three years to build. The plant is estimated to be on-line in 2008.

One more post:

MUDOmaha wrote:The Platte West Water Treatment Plant at 216th & Q Sts. will cover a total of 630,511 sq. ft -- the size of three football fields.

Similar to the Platte South Water Treatment Plant, the basins and filter beds will be under one roof. An underground reservoir will be built on the east side of the plant.

The plant and landscape design will blend in with future development. Estimated to cost $352 million, the plant will add a 100 million-gallon-per-day pumping capacity to our system, bringing the total pumping capacity to 338 million gallons per day -- pumping capacity envisioned to meet demands for the next 50 to 60 years. It is targeted to go on-line in 2008.

This website: http://www.mudomaha.com/plattewest/index.html has posted many articles written by OWH and LJS. So has the OWH threaten them with a lawsuit? :roll:

Tower cranes! Is it a highrise water plant.

I was driving north on 31/6 a few weeks ago and saw these cranes and thought to myself 'what the heck are these doing out here? What possibly could need all these cranes?' As you drive along 31 all around you are old cornfields - and then... multiple tower cranes :shock: So I finally went out today to find out.

MUD completes Platte West water treatment plant

Ashland Gazette wrote:After 30 years of plans and discussions the Metropolitan Utilities District has completed its triangle of reliability with the completion of Platte West water treatment plant. MUD president Tom Wurtz stated that the plant had been pumping water since June 14. He added that it was pumping about 20 million gallons per day during that time. The Platte West pumps from 42 wells. There are 26 wells on 1,190 acres in Saunders County and 16 wells on 1,040 acres in Douglas County, said Platte West Project Manager Kevin Tobin. The $352 million treatment plant, located at 216th and Q streets in Omaha was dedicated on Oct. 15.

I noticed today that MUD has really beefed up the fence around the Florence water treatment plan. New fence is taller with barbed wire around the top.

Better Late then never. My Grandpa used to tell about the early 40's during World War Two when they closed the road down along the river just so it would not be so easy for hostiles to poison the water.
