JPWWTP Raw Sewage Pump Valve Project

CIP# 650260-102015 JPWWTP Raw Sewage Pump Valve Actuator Replacement Project

The five raw sewage pumps at the Jackson Pike Wastewater Treatment Plant (JPWWTP) each have a cone valve that aids the dedicated pump when starting. The current cone valve actuators are operated through a common hydraulic pump and oil header with enough pressure and capacity to operate one cone valve at time.

This project will replace this common hydraulic system with individual actuator systems to allow for multiple cone valves to be on operation at the same time. Several hundred gallons of hydraulic fluid will be removed from service through the installation of these cone valves. From an operations standpoint, the plant will have more flexibility when starting pumps.

This construction of this project is roughly estimated to begin in the fall of 2020 and extend through the fall of 2021.

Financing for this project is being provided through a below market-rate loan from the OEPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program.

The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project. View the LER and the letter(PDF, 804KB) of "Notice of Issuance of a Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies."
