Aiken Silver Bluff WTP


The City of Aiken needed a new water treatment plant to continue providing high-quality water to its growing population. This new water treatment plant included a clearwell, pump station, and chemical feed system building. The chemical system incorporated onsite sodium hypochlorite generation, with briner and chemical storage, as well as the feed mechanisms. Chemicals incorporated into the new plant included fluoride, zinc, ortho-phosphate, and lime. Location in an upscale neighborhood and on a prominent road in Aiken required extensive sitework to create a barrier between the plant and the neighborhood as well as an architectural brick façade on the chemical feed system building.

This project was featured at the 2015 WEASC Annual Conference.

What People Are Saying

“Woolpert was the Design Engineer for the City of Aiken’s 3MGD Silverbluff WTP. Harper was the successful bidder on the job and was awarded a 3.6 million dollar contract to perform the construction. Since day one, Harper approached the project with a team mentality offering Value Engineering suggestions as well as successfully collaborating with the Engineer, Owner, equipment suppliers, and sub-contractors to keep the shop submittal process and construction operations moving forward. The project was completed, 7 months ahead of schedule.”
