PDG Completes a Regional Pump Station & Water Line Extension for a Major Industrial Facility

PDG was hired by Northwestern Water & Sewer District to provide consulting work to assist the District with a fast track project to provide water and sewer service to  a major industrial user in Troy Township, Wood County, Ohio. Locally based NSG Group, a worldwide provider of manufactured glass, is currently building a $265 million dollar facility to manufacture float glass for the solar industry. The 500,000 s.f. facility will provide 150 new manufacturing jobs to the region. 

Public utilities weren’t readily available at the site, but close enough in proximity that both water and sewer could be provided. PDG assisted the District and NSG in performing preliminary engineering analysis and cost estimating to determine various options for extension of both water and sanitary sewers to the site. Once final routing and costs were determined in March of 2019, PDG proceeded with the design, bidding and construction management of the improvements.

Regional Lift Station Project Elements

  • New 35’ deep wet well 
  • Chemical feed equipment
  • Telemetry and 3 phase power extension 
  • to the site
  • 9,500 LF of 10” force main
  • 2,400 LF of gravity sewers
  • 7,400 LF of 12” waterline

Working on an accelerated schedule, PDG was able to provide finished water to the site 2 months ahead of the target date. Sanitary sewers and all other elements of this successful project were designed, bid, constructed and commissioned ahead of schedule and under budget.
