Sundt has concluded several years of work at the Val Vista Water Treatment Plant in Phoenix, Ariz., with a final project that brings the 220-million-gallon-per-day facility completely up to date. Crews added a flow split system that directs water from one of the plant’s three reservoirs solely to City of Mesa customers. The $5 million upgrade will help the municipalities track and manage their water output.
The water treatment project included the addition of new inlet and outlet structures, chemical feed equipment, and new instrumentation for monitoring and compliance. All of the excavation, piping and concrete construction was performed by Sundt’s own crews.
Last year, Sundt completed a $78 million project at Val Vista that included the installation of a new granular activated carbon filtration system.
