Dickinson Water Treatment Plant

Owner:
North Dakota State Water Commission
Description:

Dickinson, North Dakota is getting a brand new wastewater treatment plant that will bring state-of-the-art technology to one of man’s oldest communal problems — how to deal with waste without those smelly holding ponds. Despite the excitement, it will take two years to complete the $30 million wastewater project with a complex of buildings and equipment to mechanically remove waste. The good news: The wastewater plant will have the capacity to handle a population of 35,000. Dickinson’s 2010 census population of 17,700 has already grown to an estimated 23,000 based on hookups and water use.

The new facility will be south of the Heart River and a half-mile south of the present lagoon acreage. Wells Concrete is providing 145 pieces of precast concrete, solid wall panels and insulated wall panels, with sandblast and form face finishes for the large project.
