Southerly ERC-FRC Replacement

CIP# 650260-103012

The Motor Control Center (MCC) and transformers that feed the East Return Activated Sludge Control Building (ERC) and the Far East Return Activated Sludge Control Building (FRC) have exhausted their useful life and require replacement as they continually trip depending on the amount of equipment operating. This project will ultimately replace the MCCs in both the ERC and FRC, the transformer and switch between the two buildings, and the harmonic filters in each building.

Construction for this treatment engineering project is anticipated to begin in Fall of 2022 and run through Spring of 2024 at the Southerly Waste Water Treatment Plant.

Financing is being provided through a below market-rate loan through the OEPA’s Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) OR Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program.
