past projects

VILLAGE OF BROADALBIN- REDUNDANT WELL INSTALLATION

JME completed design, permitting and construction phase services for the installation of a new well at the North Second Avenue well site, to provide redundant service to the Village's potable water system in order to bring the Village into compliance with New York State Department of Health regulations.  Work included testing and installation of a new 350 foot deep well, associated piping, well house addition and new controls and chlorination system.

CITY OF AMSTERDAM - WATER TREATMENT PLANT IMPROVEMENTS

JME has completed the design, and is nearing construction completion, on an $11 million upgrade to the City of Amsterdam's water treatment system.  The upgrades will increase the existing system's capacity to 12 million gallons a day.  Along with a new filtration process, which includes water clarification and filtration within a single tank,  the new facility will feature ultraviolet disinfection coupled with activated carbon "polishing" filters, which will be constructed using the facilities existing slow-sand filter tanks.

To complement the upgrades to the facility, the existing degrading filter backwash water supply tank has been demolished and replaced with a new bolted steel tank.

Other improvements to the facility include emergency standby generators, a new high-efficiency HVAC system, existing roof repairs, and upgrades to the existing SCADA system.

Also incorporated into this project were improvements to the City's raw water source.  These improvements included modifications to the existing reservoir's intake structure and rehabilitation of a portion of the raw water transmission main.  An addition has been added to the existing intake structure which allows the City to draw water from different lake elevations, as required due to seasonal fluctuations.

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.
