Hudson WWTP Improvements

City of Hudson
Hudson, MI

Project Overview

The City’s wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) was in need of significant upgrades to replace aging equipment and structures. The collection system was also experiencing significant inflow during rainfall events and infiltration when Bean Creek’s water level was high. F&V prepared a project plan and assisted with securing a State Revolving Loan. The project also identified energy savings associated with the upgrades, which secured $150,000 in principal forgiveness. It was the first progressive design/build project administered by the SRF program.

The WWTP improvements included a new influent submersible pump station, an Orbal oxidation ditch and an ultraviolet disinfection system, electrical upgrades, and a new SCADA system. Collection system improvements included replacing 1,400 linear feet of 8 and 10 inch sanitary sewers, installing 600 feet of 10 and 24 inch cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) lining of existing sewers, pipe repairs, and storm and sanitary sewer separation.

The City reduced infiltration in the collection system and received a safer, more modern disinfection process. The improvements also increased the reliability of the system for the next 25 years and saved the City money on its electric bill.

This project was delivered as a Design-Build by F&V and FVC. It was one of the first in the state that utilized the SRF Progressive Design-Build delivery method to expedite the design, bid, and construction of the project.
