DRWP Clarifier Project

CIP No: 690278-100005

This project is at the Dublin Road Water Plant (DRWP) and is a critical component in the City’s potable water supply system. The plant was constructed in phases between 1967 and 1975 and various elements of the plant have been upgraded over the years. The purpose of the project is to replace the existing clarifier mechanisms, replace the flocculation drives, perform limited concrete repair, and replace miscellaneous basin appurtenances such as piping, pipe supports, electrical gear etc. This project will help extend the life of this facility so that it can continue to provide a reliable source of water to Columbus and surrounding communities for many years to come.

Construction will start in the spring of 2021 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

The project is not expected to have any adverse environmental impacts since construction will occur within the existing DRWP treatment basin area footprint(PDF, 631KB). The design will include provisions to address environmental issues consistent with the City’s Environmental Management System (EMS) and local, state, and federal requirements. 

The Division of Water plans to fund this project with a below market-rate loan through the Ohio EPA’s Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) Program. Prior to granting this loan, the Ohio EPA required a detailed submittal from the Division of Water to determine the project’s eligibility for the program.

The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project. View the LER(PDF, 701KB) "Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies.”
