Culpeper WTP Filter Upgrades

Project Summary

Timmons Group executed a field study and assessment of existing drinking water treatment plant filters in order to determine a proper plan of rehabilitation. The assessment of dual-media filters included investigations into diminishing media volumes in filter, operational practices, and malfunctioning components. Study recommendations included upgrades and replacement of filter components, replacement of filter media, cost estimates, and a list of qualified contractors to execute the recommendations. The implementation of these study recommendations yielded a more efficient filter operation, as well as extended filter run times.
