April 10, 2020: City Crews and Evoqua Technicians are still in the process of installation of the product feed equipment and tank site preparation. The tank site prep should be completed today as the tanks are placed in their final position. The Evoqua Team will have two members on site Monday, April 13, to continue the feed equipment installation and final prep work (which may continue for a few more days). Evoqua assured us this week that the Sewer Odor Control System will be functioning by no later than Thursday April 16 of next week.
April 6, 2020: The piping and solution feed equipment has been delivered to the lift station sites today. We expect installation of this equipment to begin tomorrow April 7 as planned.
March 24, 2020: Now that the product tanks have been delivered to the City, we received word from the Evoqua team that the product feed system equipment will be delivered to us on April 6; this equipment is expected to be installed on April 7.
March 20, 2020: The City received word yesterday from the Evoqua Team that the Sewer Odor Control product tanks were shipped yesterday (3-19-2020); we anticipate delivery on site to lift stations next week. Also, we anticipate that the feed injection system equipment will be shipped sometime soon as well but have not received any firm dates on shipment from Evoqua at this time. Evoqua advised us that they will provide a firm ship date for the injection feed equipment as soon as they know so we can track its location as well.
March 16, 2020: The Evoqua Team has recently informed the City that the delivery of equipment will begin this week; The product tanks will either be delivered to the sites today or tomorrow, March 16 or 17 respectively. The testing of the feed system equipment is almost complete and will be shipped after it passes testing protocols.
March 3, 2020: City staff informed by the Evoqua team that there was a delay in production pertaining to some of the equipment necessary for equipment operations. Jim Boyer, Public Works director, anticipates that the equipment delivery may not arrive this week, but next week. This delays the equipment start up by one more week, so originally we anticipated equipment start up the week of March 9, now, start up may not be until the week of March 16.
Feb. 2, 2020: City staff was part of a conference call with the Evoqua Water Technologies team to discuss dates for equipment installation and projected start up of the new system. Although Evoqua originally anticipated equipment to be delivered the end of January, they determined that equipment would finally be delivered the first week of March (this has changed since then as the manufacturer indicated that production of some parts would not be finished until later and delivery is expected the second week of March). Logistical items were discussed pertaining to electrical circuit connections, site location access, and by what methods of offloading equipment will be needed at each site.
