Bridger Pines County Water and Sewer District, a long-term Stahly Engineering client, utilized our services to plan and implement an upgrade to their wastewater collection and treatment system. Bridger Pines County WSD sought a variety of funding sources with assistance from our firm. Sources included TSEP, WRDA, RRGL, and a State Revolving Fund loan. Public relations and the use of bond counsel was imperative to the successful outcome of the upgrade. The system upgrade utilized Level II treatment, effluent storage, and spray irrigation. It is a zero discharge wastewater treatment system.
Stahly also completed engineering and permitting of a new water supply well for the Bridger Pines subdivision. Once prospective locations were identified, test wells were drilled in order to determine water production flow rates. Stahly Engineering conducted pump tests and analyses to validate locations for the new water supply wells. Due to access issues and limited production from site to site, the best possible supply well locations were found to be within 100-feet of an existing wastewater lift station. Stahly staff tested and identified necessary repairs for sewer components that fell within 100-feet of the proposed supply wells in order to pave the way for a successful MDEQ deviation request for the supply well locations. Construction plans and specifications for final development of the well locations including submersible pumps, a disinfection system, radio tank level controls/telemetry, and a sewer force main re-route/replacement were submitted to (and approved by) MDEQ Construction is planned to commence in spring of 2018. Stahly Engineering provided construction administration for the project.
