COLUMBUS, Ohio – Burgess & Niple (B&N) recently was selected by the City of Columbus, Ohio, to design water treatment system improvements at the Hap Cremean Water Treatment Plant (WTP). The original plant was built in 1954 and is the largest water treatment facility in the City of Columbus, serving more than 500,000 people in the metropolitan area.
The team of B&N and MWH Americas, Inc. (MWH) recently completed a two-year study to evaluate treatment alternatives to be implemented at Hap Cremean that will reduce disinfection byproducts in the potable water supply and ensure compliance with new United States Environmental Protection Agency regulations.
Now that the preferred treatment alternative has been chosen, B&N and MWH are developing the detailed design of improvements at the Hap Cremean Water Treatment Plant. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2011.
