past projects

VILLAGE OF FORT JOHNSON - SEWAGE COLLECTION & TRANSMISSION

Completed planning, design and construction phase services for a $3.3 million sewage collection and transmission system and pump station to transport wastewater to the City of Amsterdam. JME secured $2.2 million from USDA/RD in grant funds and also developed intermunicipal agreements and provided financial administration.

VILLAGE OF ST. JOHNSVILLE - WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT

JME completed the design and construction observation of treatment plant upgrades including a new Smith and Loveless triplex pumping station with variable speed controls, a new standby generator with automatic transfer switch and retrofitting the existing aeration basins with Sanitaire ceramic diffusers, pipe grid and two new 75 hp blowers.

TOWN OF DUANESBURG - WWTP & SEWAGE COLLECTION SYSTEM

JME provided preliminary engineering services, grant application assistance and prepared all necessary engineering and environmental reports for the Duanesburg/Delanson Sewer District No. 1 Project. Design and construction engineering services were also completed for the project which involved a gravity sanitary sewage collection system in the hamlet of Quaker Street and Village of Delanson, three sewage pump stations and a wastewater treatment plant utilizing the SBR process and tertiary sand filters to meet the intermittent stream discharge standards.

CITY OF AMSTERDAM - WWTP IMPROVEMENTS

JME completed a study of the impacts on the City's WWTP and collection system by the proposed wastewater from the Hero/Beechnut facility in the Town of Florida. Based on the recommendations in our report, the South Side Sewage Pump Station pumps were replaced, several sections of gravity sewer were increased in diameter, the primary and secondary clarifiers were rehabilitated, the aeration tanks were reconfigured and new diffusers added, a scum processing unit and building were constructed, pumps and piping were replaced, a new standby generator was installed and a full SCADA system was placed into service.

CENTRAL BRIDGE SEWER DISTRICT - VILLAGES OF ESPERANCE & SCHOHARIE - WWTP & SEWAGE COLLECTION SYSTEM

JME performed the preliminary engineering, environmental report writing, assisted in funding procurement and provided design and construction phase engineering services for the project over a ten-year period. A gravity sanitary sewer collection system was designed for the hamlet of Central Bridge and all of the wastewater is pumped to a new 60,000 gpd packaged extended aeration treatment plant. We are currently working on the second and third phases of the project which will extend sewer service to properties outside of the original service area.

VILLAGE OF BROADALBIN - WWTP & COLLECTION SYSTEM

As Village designated Engineer, we completed the design and construction oversight of a $7.1 million wastewater treatment plant and sanitary sewage collection system involving over eight miles of sewer transmission lines, collection piping and six pump stations. JME also secured a $2 million grant from USDA/RD and zero percent interest loans from the NYS Revolving Loan Fund.

MONTGOMERY CO. INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AGENCY - TOWN OF FLORIDA BUSINESS PARK

Provided design and permitting services for the establishment of a 500-acre business park along Route 5S that includes the Target Distribution Center and new Beachnut Plant. Environmental services included the preparation of the DEIS, FEIS and Statement of Findings in accordance with SEQRA. Other permits included Army Corps, NYSDEC Water Supply and NYSDEC 401 Water Quality permits.

Engineering services included the formation of the Town of Florida Water and Sewer Districts along with the planning, design and construction services of such utilities to service the Business Park, subdivision approval, preparation of bid/construction documents and construction inspection.

The water portion involved the construction of a 3 MG water storage tank, tank vault and associated transmission and distribution lines. The sewer portion involved the installation of PVC gravity sewers, pressure pipe, existing southside pump station and collection system upgrades and a new pump station. A new Smith & Loveless pump station was installed along with PVC forcemain to convey sewage from the new Target Distribution Center to the City of Amsterdam. Various sections of the gravity collection system were upgraded to accommodate the addition capacity needed for the business park. Upgrades to the existing Southside sewage pump station were also necessary to handle the increased flows of the park. Work included the installation of three 50hp pumps, new variable speed drives, valves, level transducer and control system. All control data is transmitted to the City of Amsterdam's SCADA screen located at the WWTP, which allows the plant operator to operate the station.
