PAWP Well Pump Replacement


This project will replace nine existing raw water pumps with new vertical turbine pumps at three of the collector wells (CW-101, 104 and115). The pumps being replaced were the original raw water pumps for the water plant constructed in early 1980's. This puts the pumps at almost 40 years old which is well beyond the typical life span of these pumps which is 15-20 years.

If no action is taken, the pumps will continue to suffer the same reduced performance and physical deterioration that was observed in the pumps removed from Collector Well 103. Replacing the pumps is the only way to continue to provide a reliable raw water source to the Plant; making use of the existing assets and maintaining  the current approved capacity.

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 and letter(PDF, 850KB) of "Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies.
