Garfield Water Works Rehabilitation
The project entailed the replacement of three (3) existing water storage tanks due to deterioration of the existing structures. The new 1.2 MG Belmont Hill Water Storage Tank enhanced pressure throughout the City. Boswell also prepared the engineering study, permit application and design of a new booster pumping station, and a 0.4 MG water storage tank to replace the existing facilities. The new facilities optimized use of the existing wells and minimized bulk purchase of water. The project included the installation and implementation of a system-wide Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) instrumentation system, which eliminated 24-hour manned controls. The project, funded under the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust Fund (NJEIT), had an approximate construction cost of $6 million.
