The Southwest Clean Water Plant is a treatment facility in Springfield, Missouri. The plant began operating in 1959, and its current treating capacity is 42.5 million gallons per day. It has undergone several upgrades and expansions according to changing regulations and technology. Most recently, the City of Springfield hired Crossland to make extensive improvements to the plant's biosolids extension.
A few challenges our team worked to overcome included the discovery of a design flaw with vital safety implications. Crews alerted the owner and engineer and helped design the necessary fix. Even though the piping and equipment on the project were complicated, everything started up and worked well.
Overall, the project team did a great job of proactively recognizing and addressing any issues with the owner/engineer, helping create solutions to keep the project moving forward.
