EDWARDSVILLE, IL, June 16, 2015 -- In an effort to boost flow capacity to 9.6 million gallons per day, the water treatment plant serving the city of Edwardsville, Ill., recently received a new high-service pump station.

Contegra Construction Co., a design, build and construction management firm, officially completed the project, which was valued at $2.3 million.

To accommodate potential future expansion, Contegra built the new high-service station, which features five 200-HP vertical turbine high-service pumps on a site adjoining the existing water treatment facility.

The company also converted a pump station on the site, which currently houses both high- and low-service units, to an exclusive low-service pump facility; created a 20-foot-deep cast-in-place wet well; and installed new electrical service for the entire water treatment plant.
