The Avenues, Broadacres, North Frink Street, and Edenwood Water Line Replacement

Design and Construction oversight for the replacement of 262,000 LF (50 miles) of existing water lines, including the replacement of the existing Glenn Street Elevated Water Tank with a new 1M Gallon elevated water tank. 1. This project has received three separate awards: the 2020 ACEC Engineering Excellence Award, the 2019 Municipal Association Public Works Achievement Award for the City of Cayce, and the 2018 Tnemec Tank of the Year People’s Choice Award.

22.5-MGD Lake Murray Water Treatment Plant Upgrade

Due to rapid growth, the plant needed to be expanded to a treatment capacity from 13.5 MGD to 22.5 MGD. Design included upgrade of the raw water pump facility, new carbon feed system, raw water metering vault, flash mix reactor, two 4.5 MGD process trains, upgrades to the waste handling facilities, expansion of the pipe gallery building, high service water line, new on-site 2000 lbs./day hypochlorous acid generation system, a new clearwell, a new high service pump station, and upgrade of existing feed system. A significant accomplishment of the project was the replacement of the gaseous chlorine as the primary disinfectant with a non-hazardous hypochlorous acid generation system.

Stanley L Goodwin Water Treatment Plant

Design of a new 2.5 million gallon clearwell; two 350,000 gallon Chlorine Contact Tanks, a new high service pump station, two upflow solids contact clarifiers, a new sludge thickener, a new sludge pump station, and new filters for a total treatment capacity of 9.6 MGD. AEC was awarded the ACEC Palmetto Award, CESC Grand Award, and ACEC National Recognition Award for this project.

Saluda Gardens Water System Improvements

Installation of approximately 46,000 LF of new 8-inch, 6-inch, 4-inch, and 2-inch water mains, 45 fire hydrant assemblies, and associated appurtenances in the City of West Columbia.
