Brown and Caldwell

(Whites Creek Pumping Station Improvements, Nashville, TN - Waste and Stormwater)

Metro Water Services’ new Whites Creek Pumping Station has eliminated sanitary sewer overflows previously attributed to the undersized and unreliable station it replaced.   Subsequently, Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation lifted its non-contact advisory for the portion of Whites Creek near the pumping station; part of the Whites Creek Blueway Trail recently featured in National Geographic’s GeoStories for its exceptional water recreation.

The new 48.5 million gallons per day, 65-foot deep pumping station consists of two separate variable speed pumping systems with unique self-cleaning features improving reliability and efficiency.  It uses ~30% less pumping energy compared to the old station.

(Hendersonville Utility District Water Treatment Plant Additions, Hendersonville, TN - Water Resources)

Water Management Services, provided planning, design, and construction inspection services for the Hendersonville Utility District Water Treatment Plant Additions project. This project was in response to the Utility Districts need for additional treatment capacity and concerns that traditional treatment techniques might not be adequate for continued compliance with future regulations.

The project involved the construction of a new 10 million gallon per day treatment plant, which incorporated the original raw water pumping station and clearwells. This facility provides the Hendersonville Utility District with the technology needed to address challenging regulatory standards and provide outstanding water quality to customers.
