The Horseradish Capital of the World is set to replace its nearly 60-year-old Water Treatment Plant built in 1958 with a new efficient facility. Hurst-Rosche is responsible for the design, bidding, and construction administration of the new 5 million gallon per day water treatment facility that will allow the City of Collinsville to grow and provide clean, quality water to its residents for decades to come.
The 20,000 sq. ft. building will be constructed of pre-cast concrete panels and will include an office area, lab, and process areas.
Dennis Kress, the Public Works Director in Collinsville, said the new facility design will modernize their current system and create a new flexibility that will allow comprehensive maintenance and expansion for Collinsville.
“We’re excited to see this project started and can’t wait to get it online and completed,” Kress said. “We worked hard to see this happen.”
The $20 million facility is scheduled to be completed in September 2019.
