Lycoming County Water & Sewer Authority Regional Water System – Lycoming County, PA
In order to support planned growth and economic development within portions of Lycoming County, the Lycoming County Water and Sewer Authority (LCWSA) was tasked with creating a new public community water system to serve existing and future residential, commercial and industrial development. LCWSA retained HRG to provide engineering and design services to accomplish the creation of the new water system.
Phase 1 – New Water System
To determine the most feasible approach for developing a public water system, HRG assisted LCWSA in evaluating several alternatives for developing such a water system. Ultimately the development of a new groundwater well, water distribution system and finished water storage tank was selected. Construction of Phase 1 of the water system generally consisted of a new groundwater well, disinfection treatment system, 22,000 linear feet of waterline, SCADA and controls system and a 316,000-gallon finished water storage tank. HRG provided surveying, design, permitting, bidding, construction administration and resident project representation services for the Phase 1 Project.
Phase 2 – Muncy Borough Interconnection Project
After the completion of the Phase 1 water system, LCWSA immediately began looking for additional water sources to provide source redundancy. HRG was once again tasked by LCWSA to identify potential water sources and bring additional capacity online. After an evaluation of eleven different alternatives, it was decided to pursue an interconnection with the neighboring Muncy Borough water system.
Known as the “Phase 2” Muncy Borough Interconnection Project, the project involved the construction of a new water booster station, interconnection metering pit and approximately 11,300 linear feet of new waterline to connect with the Phase 1 system. The new waterlines involved several PennDOT highway crossings, a stream crossing and the connection of numerous customers along the waterline alignment. HRG provided surveying, design, permitting, bidding, construction administration and resident project representation services for the Phase 2 project. In addition, HRG provided financial services for the project. HRG worked closely with LCWSA, Lycoming County and the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) to obtain enough grant money to fund 100% of the total project costs.
Grey Fox Plaza Water System Project
LCWSA acquired the neighboring Village Water Company to incorporate into the LCWSA Regional Water System. Due to deficiencies within the original Village Water Company, numerous upgrades were needed to the water system to ensure reliable water service and provide customers with fire protection. HRG was hired by LCWSA to design the upgrades to the water system, which included a new 200,000-gallon elevated water storage tank, the development of a new groundwater source, and the construction of approximately 14,000 feet of new waterline to provide system redundancy and interconnect with the existing Phase 1 system. HRG provided surveying, design, permitting, bidding and construction administration and resident project representative services.
