Pittsboro Water Treatment Plant


Enabling utility independence with future-focused design
Challenge: The town was expecting significant rate increases from its supplier, Citizens Energy Group, and anticipated sustained future growth.
Solution: RQAW | DCCM carried this project from funding through construction completion. It included a skeletonized water model to confirm pressures would be sufficient throughout the distribution system during normal and worst-case operating conditions. RQAW | DCCM managed this project to improve the entirety of Pittsboro’s distribution system. The project began with the development of a water distribution model using Water CAD to map the entire system, which included 23 miles of distribution main and identification of system deficiencies throughout. The treatment plant is a 3,200-sf building designed to provide vehicle space for the Town and allow for future expansion. The 2nd phase of the project included a residual handling pond, two new wells, approximately 1,600-ft of 6-in PVC transmission main from the well fields to the treatment plants, and approximately 3,000-ft of 18-in DIP water main to the tie-in point of the distribution system. Both phases of the project were funded through the Indiana State Revolving Fund (SRF).
