Wabash Headworks Project
Project Description: The project included pumping and screening upgrades at a headworks facility with hydraulic capacity of 30 MGD. The existing headworks structure was reconfigured following the removal of two screw pumps with the addition of parallel fine mechanical screens, dual washer compactors, four submersible pumps with variable frequency drives (VFDs) and automated controls, slide gates, a trolley hoist assembly, and headworks screening building. Floatables and debris entering the plant were reduced, as well as improved reliability, control, and monitoring of pumping operations. The original/overall design was also provided by United staff in the 1990s.
