Fairplay Wastewater Treatment Plant
Fairplay Sanitation District
Burns & McDonnell Engineering Co., Inc.
Award Contract: $5,051,030
The project involved construction of a new
wastewater treatment plant and demolition of the existing
antiquated lagoon system. The headworks and clarifier
components of the treatment plant were constructed in a single
facility to speed construction and minimize costs. The clarifiers
and process piping were placed 20 feet below grade to meet high altitude,
severe climate design requirements. The plant is located
above 9,800’ elevation.
