The Calumet Water Reclamation Plant Disinfection Facilities project was a fast track design for the installation of the first chemical disinfection system to the plant. This project was designed in under one year. The Calumet WRP has the capacity to treat approximately 350 MGD, this project will disinfect the effluent water using sodium hypochlorite and sodium bisulfate prior to discharge. IDCS was responsible for the electrical design of a new Chemical Storage and Pumping Building, as well as site work for power distribution, including providing temporary power to the police trailer during the construction phase. Extensive site investigation was required for locating adequate power supply and the routing of utilities to supply power. IDCS also provided electrical design for lighting, medium and low voltage power, and the SCADA and telephone systems. Additionally, IDCS developed a Statement of Probable Cost for the electrical work. This project was bid under the engineers estimate and is currently under construction with a completion date set for December 2015. IDCS is currently providing construction services on the project which include reviewing shop drawings, answering RFIs, and final punch-list review.
