Glynn County Water Pollution Control Plant
Brunswick, Georgia, USA
With demand outpacing its existing .3 MGD water pollution control plant, Glynn County turned to Haskell for a solution. The result was a 2 MGD facility upgrade to meet current demand with provisions to transition to 4 MGD when necessary.
One of the project’s most significant benefits was protection of the plant’s surrounding marsh area and natural habitats during construction. We used directional boring to limit environmental impact during effluent line installation and installed a unique river diffuser system, which immediately increased capacity to .5 MGD.
Our skilled craftsmen responded to the challenging concrete structures by constructing our first clarifiers and the largest oxidation ditch in our company’s history. The design of the project’s ultra-complex headworks required the use of every single Haskell forming method in this single structure.
County engineers were pleased to move through such a massive project without significant issues. We were equally proud to resolve Glynn County’s wastewater treatment shortage both on time and under budget.
In my over 30 years of experience, I have never had a project of this scope and magnitude go so well…The project was completed on time and under budget which is a tribute to the entire team.Paul J. Bruner, Jr. P.E. County Engineer, Glynn County Department of Engineering Services
