Collins Park Water Treatment Plant 40 Million Gallon Per Day Expansion Project Award 2020 Co-Project of the Year
The Toledo Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers recognized the City of Toledo’s Collins Park Water Treatment Plant 40 million gallon per day expansion project as the 2020 Co-Project of the Year, along with the Ballville Dam removal project in Fremont, Ohio.
“The 40 million gallon per day expansion was an incredibly complex and challenging endeavor undertaken by the City of Toledo, its lead design firm, Arcadis, and the contractor, Mosser Construction,” said Toledo Public Utilities Director Ed Moore. “The successful improvements provide the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant with redundancy for the treatment of up to 140 million gallons per day.”
Representatives from Toledo Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers presented officials from the water treatment plant with the award during a small ceremony at the facility today.
The project was completed while the existing water treatment plant facilities remained in full operation and other projects were also underway, creating logistical and technical challenges for the plant operators, contractor, and design team.
“The successful completion of the 40 million gallons per day expansion without causing any disruption in service to the city and its surrounding customers is a testament to the ingenuity and expertise of the city’s plant operators, the design team, and the contractor,” Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz said.
