Hot Springs, Ark., March 21, 2017 – RJN Group, Inc. is pleased to announce a new contract with the City of Hot Springs. The project, entitled “Headworks and Ultraviolet Improvements Project at the Davidson Drive Wastewater Treatment Facility,” has a not-to-exceed price of $8.98 million and is scheduled for substantial completion by December 2017.
The primary objective of this project is to improve the treatment performance of the plant. This project will do so by converting the existing chlorine gas disinfection process to ultraviolet disinfection. It will also improve the Facility’s influent screening and grit removal process. To save time and money, the City and RJN agreed to opt for a design-build alternative project delivery method. To learn more about this project and why the two parties decided on design-build, see RJN's latest blog feature.
The City of Hot Springs has a wastewater treatment facility that collects, treats, and transports wastewater for more than 23,000 customers. A network of approximately 600 miles of wastewater lines collects sewage from service areas in the city and county. Because of the nature of lake terrain, more than 120 pump stations and 4500 grinder pumps transport the sewage to the wastewater treatment plant where it is treated and then discharged into Lake Catherine.
