Thursday, April 7th, 2011

The design and construction is being handled concurrently and a Certificate To Construct (CTC) approval with VA DEQ is in process.

The Unsolicited PPEA by the Reid and MEB DB team is a true success story in the making. The original WWTP upgrade and expansion project estimated by others was projected to be nearly 30 million dollars with a system that had less capacity and treatment capabilities. The PPEA DB Price is $16.45 million dollars with an expanded design capacity from 0.5 MGD to 1.5 MGD and the ability to meet very low Nitrogen and Phosphorus limits. Third Party financing was provided as an option in the PPEA proposal but the County ultimately opted for Virginia Resource Authority (VRA) Funding. Contact Shane Reid, P.E. for more information.
