Pierce City Water Distribution, Supply, and Storage Improvements
The OWN, Inc. team has been helping Pierce City, Missouri, with multiple projects to make improvements to their water wastewater systems.
For the recent water system improvements project, our team provided an engineering study to determine options and recommendations for going forward. The plans were then used to pursue funds from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ (MDNR) State Revolving Fund (SRF) and Community Development Block Grants (CDBG).
OWN collaborated with the city on planning, running a cost analysis, and funding applications to USDA, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and MDNR. Once funding was decided, the design work began. Improvements to the wastewater system were made and included:
- Over 40,000 feet of waterline
- More than 80 new fire hydrants
- 150+ new water valves
- Renovation and painting of a water tower
- New chlorination facilities
- New automated water meter system
- Well system improvements
- SCADA system control improvements
The total project cost approximately $4.5M.
Other projects include assistance from our staff to look at the collection system and the impact of stormwater to the system as well as other improvements through MDNR and CDBG programs.
