Wright County Business Park Water Supply

Wright County, IA | Water

Overview

In order to provide Wright County Industrial Park with the appropriate water supply, ISG’s water solutions experts designed a phased approach to address current and future needs.


Opportunity

The new industrial park, located within the Mississippian Aquifer, had one industry utilizing approximately 10 acres of the 75-acre site. The remainder of the site would be available for future industrial users to purchase acreage, and the water supply, treatment, and distribution system would be located on-site to provide businesses with necessary water demands.

To address water supply needs for current businesses while also planning for the unknown water demands of future users, a cost-analysis was required for the industrial park developer to plan for future water demands without having to make costly changes to the system.

Solution

Wright County (the County) enlisted the expertise of the ISG water solutions team to prepare a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) for their new industrial park, outlining the alternative analysis and design for a water system that looked at supply, treatment, and distribution options to provide the necessary water supply to meet user demand. Recommendations aligned with current Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), Ten State Standards, and Statewide Urban Design and Specifications (SUDAS) requirements.

The County moved forward with a phased approach recommendation for the construction of the water system, which addressed the unknown levels of future user demand. The first phase consists of the construction of a small treatment building with pressure tanks, controls, and chlorine disinfection, and two wells that provide a capacity of 20,000 – 30,000 gallons per day with the ability to increase to 40,000 – 60,000 per day if deemed necessary. This water system approach provides accommodations for approximately half of the site and pipe stub outs have been capped for future users, lowering upfront capital investment to the developer by reducing operations and maintenance costs.
