Another new project for The Conco Companies is providing concrete pumps for the Miramar Water Treatment Plant in the City of San Diego. The Miramar Water Treatment Plant was originally constructed in 1962 and provides drinking water to an estimated 500,000 customers in the northern section of San Diego. The approximately $89 million project was started in June 2016 and is expected to be completed by May 2020.
Shimmick is the general contractor for the Miramar Clearwell Improvement Project, which is located on the plant site and includes multiple scopes of work such as the replacement of the Clearwells #1 and #2 built in 1959 and 1974 respectively. The clearwells provide storage of treated water prior to distribution into the potable water supply system. The project started with the demolition of the existing clearwells and the associated piping and facilities, and includes the construction of new clearwells and piping, etc. The plant says the new clearwells will increase their storage capacity by approximately 58 million gallons.
The project also includes a new Chlorine Contact Chamber and an adjoining lift station as well as a new maintenance and operation building and a security guard shack. There will also be other upgrades to the site. Conco’s duties entail providing concrete pumping services for the project.
The Miramar Clearwell Improvements Project is considered to be a critical infrastructure improvement for the City of San Diego and will help to maintain a safe and reliable water supply to the community.
