Xylem team helps reduce project footprint and costs for county and contractor

New York’s Albany County was in the process of updating its wastewater treatment plants when it turned to BCI Construction for a temporary bypass system to transfer 88 million gallons per day during the project. The county wanted to avoid interruption of sewer service and needed a solution that would allow it to continue replacing its old chlorine bleaching tanks with UV technology.

The upgrades, which took place in the summer 2014, were performed in phases at the county’s North and South Plants. Mark Bacon, project manager for BCI Construction, was responsible for setting up the temporary bypass pumping system and selected Xylem to help design it and provide the optimal equipment. Bacon, who had worked with Xylem before, said the solution they developed minimized the costs of renting for the duration of the project. The team also stepped in with its expertise, offering advice on the supplied pumps. “They helped with a lot of things, from the system setup, design and the maintenance,” he said. “They also knew the equipment well, so they were very helpful and answered all our questions.”
