Kaiser Electric building new water plant in Staunton, Ill.

Kaiser Electric is building a new water treatment plant in Staunton, Ill. Work on the $8 million facility began in December 2011 and is to be completed in February 2013. The facility is about 25 minutes north of St. Louis. The plant will use a dissolved air flotation (DAF) clarification system that removes algae at the beginning of the treatment process, drastically reducing treatment chemicals. About 80 percent of the facility will be underground to blend in with its surroundings. Kaiser crews will install electrical service, provide new service to an existing pump station, and install two standby generators and all power, lighting, and distributive control systems for pumps, aeration, filters, tanks, valves and chemical feed systems. The general contractor is Korte & Luitjohan Contractors, and the architect/engineer is Heneghan & Associates.
