Greenfield WWTP Groundbreaking
The City of Greenfield, IN broke ground on its new Wastewater Treatment Plant (WTTP) on October 11, 2022. The groundbreaking event held at the project site was well-attended. In attendance were the Greenfield Mayor, City Officials including the Council and Board of Public Works, the Police Chief, and City staff. Also in attendance were representatives from Commonwealth Engineers, F.A. Wilhelm Construction, the Indiana Finance Authority (IFA) State Revolving Fund (SRF), and various consultants who were instrumental in getting this project underway. Dignitaries who attended to show support for this project included State Senator Michael Crider, State Representative Bob Cherry, Tyler Warman from the office of Governor Holcomb, Congressman Greg Pence, and Kathryn Laesch from the Office of Senator Mike Braun.
This is a $70M construction project funded through the IFA SRF program. The project includes the replacement of the existing WWTP with a new plant consisting of a raw sewage lift station, valve vault, and controls building; headworks building with screening, grit, and odor control equipment; sequencing batch reactor treatment system with blowers, mixers, and decanters; ultraviolet disinfection system; low-profile cascade aeration system; non-potable water system; sludge processing system including a sludge holding tank, blowers, mixers, decanters, sludge pumps, centrifuge dewatering, polymer feed, and conveyor system; chemical feed system for phosphorus removal, septage receiving station, vac truck screenings drying beds, lab and office building, emergency generators, and demolition of existing plant equipment, process tanks, and buildings.
This project is unique in that it is being constructed on an old City waste disposal facility and is one of the first in Indiana to do so.
