I-70 Exit 59 Wastewater Facilities Masterplan

Danville, Indiana

The HCRSD recognized the need for wastewater collection and treatment facilities to support pending commercial development at Exit 59 on I-70 in Liberty Township. American Structurepoint assisted the HCRSD with preliminary engineering required to master plan, size, and position facilities; secure property for a plant site; and negotiating funding scenarios with prospective commercial developers and an adjoining sewer utility. The need for a wastewater treatment plant with capacity of 125,000 GPD, expandable to 500,000 GPD, was identified. A treatment plant site south of I-70 was selected, surveyed, assessed for environmental conditions, and finally purchased. Conceptual plans were developed for treatment facilities and for a regional collection system.
