Water Supply, Treatment and Distribution
City of Tomah - Well No. 10 Radium Removal Facilities and Well No. 14 ConstructionThis project includes the design, construction and operational training for a HMO radium removal system. The project consisted of a building addition to Well No. 10, pressure filter for radium removal, and chemical feed system. Chemical feed system consisted of chlorine, polyphosphate, a caustic soda (NaOH), and a HMO mixture to remove the radium. The system was designed for existing well capacity of 700-1000 gpm but has the added capacity to handle the satellite wells.
Subsequently, a new Satellite Well No. 14 was designed to increase the available water supply. Well No. 14 was designated to pump through Well No. 10 for radium removal. Tomah received a Clean Water Fund Loan at 1.65% interest rate.
City of Rhinelander
Town & Country Engineering, Inc. designed and administered construction of new Well No. 7 and well house, and rehabilitation of Well House No. 6. Because of the granite geology in the Rhinelander area, Well No. 7 was designed as a gravel pack well. Subsequently a Well No. 8 was added in the immediate vicinity of Well No. 7 to create a wellfield. Well No. 8 was routed through Well No. 7 for chemical treatment and pumping to the City water distribution system. Rhinelander received a special federal grant for over $900,000 for this well project.
Village of McFarland - New 750,000-Gallon Elevated Steel Pedestal Spheroid Water Storage
Tank and Regional Water Study
The project included a "Needs Assessment Report", in which deficiencies in the water system were identified, and construction of a new water tower. The "Needs Assessment Report" included updating the computer water model of the system to analyze water supply and fire flow demands for both existing and future conditions. The study prioritized recommended projects based on anticipated growth. The study determined the location of the water tower, location and size of future major water mains and a plan for future facilities such as a new well and water reservoir.
The basic recommendation was to construct a new 750,000 gallon elevated storage tank to supplement the Village's existing elevated storage tank. Since startup in November 2000, the two-tower system has worked well without any auxiliary controls.
Village of Mazomanie - New Concrete Water Storage Reservoir and Connecting Water Main
This project involved construction of a new 350,000 gallon circular concrete water storage reservoir. Town & Country Engineering, Inc. prepared a water system report analyzing the desirable capacity and the best location for a new storage reservoir. The storage tank in this case supplemented an existing storage tank to bring the Village's total storage capacity up to desirable levels. The project involved complete replacement of the water system controls, including adding a radio based telemetry supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.
Village of Deerfield - 600,000-Gallon Water Reservoir, Well Construction and Pressure
Booster Station Elimination
The Village of Deerfield retained Town & Country Engineering, Inc., for several water system-related projects. One of the two Village wells was found to be contaminated by industrial chemicals in the late 1980's. A new well was drilled to replace it and Town & Country Engineering, Inc. designed a new pump and pumphouse to utilize that well. Subsequently another existing well was lost to contamination
and Town & Country Engineering designed and administered construction of another new well.
Deerfield originally had a small above-ground steel reservoir which was at such an elevation that
three areas of the Village required booster stations to create adequate pressure. Town & Country
Engineering created a computer water model of the Village water distribution system and used that
model in the design of a hilltop 600,000-gallon above-ground glass-coated steel water reservoir
that should serve the Village for many generations.
