Construction of Water Treatment Facility
The Saco River Water Treatment Facility is a 37,000 ft2 (3,440 m2) building, which includes a Raw Water Pumping Station, Chemical Room, Process Area, Filtration and Flocculation Area.
The concrete structure will become a 20-million gallon (76-million liters) water treatment facility providing drinking water to coastal municipalities in York County serving 50,000 people and allows for future expansion to serve neighboring water systems in Southern Maine.
Forming and Shoring for Concrete Construction
The $50 Million Saco River Drinking Water Treatment Facility is scheduled to become operational in 2022 and will replace the existing water treatment facility, which has served Southern Maine communities of Biddeford, Saco, Old Orchard Beach and Scarborough since 1884. VR Concrete, Inc. has pushed full steam ahead to successfully form, shore and place concrete for the Pump Room, Process Area, Chemical Room, Filtration and Flocculation Areas.
