The $66 million Fort Polk Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP) are nearing completion. When complete the North and South Fort WWTPs will process monthly wastewater averages of 1.7 mgd, and 4.6 mgd. The North and South Fort WWTPS include an influent pump station, headworks, aerations basins, clarifiers, a process building with sludge handling, chlorine contact chambers, chemical storage and feed facilities, an emergency generator, and an administration building.

MWH Constructors is serving as the general contractor with a team of only five individuals in charge of overseeing construction on the admin building along with the two WWTPs. The MWHC team has managed an upwards of 35 different subcontractors during the life of the project, a feat not easily accomplished by such a small team.

“Our team is dedicated to providing a safe and reliable project to our client,” said Ted Michaelidis, project manager with MWHC. “Everyone on site has done an exceptional job to help deliver this project on time and on schedule. We made a commitment that safety came first above all, while delivering a quality project, and this team has done just that.”

One of the most important aspects of any construction site is safety. The project team has gone above and beyond to assure that their vision for having a safe jobsite is being seen through to the end. More than 1,036 days and 633,995 man hours have passed without a lost time incident. This is yet another incredible accomplishment, and means that the project team has made it nearly three years without any safety incidents.

The North and South WWTPs are slated to reach substantial completion a month apart – South Fort will be completed April 2017, while the date for the North will be in May 2017.
