	The expansion of the Third Creek Wastewater Treatment facility - one of the largest capital projects in the history of Statesville City Government - is about a year away from completion, according to Joe Hudson, Statesville Water Resources Director.
	The facility is located off Salisbury Hwy. on Third Creek Drive in east Statesville.  In anticipation of Statesville's future growth, the expansion will increase the facility's capacity to treat wastewater from 4 million gallons a day to six million.  
	The $19.8 million project and is being funded through a 2.0% low interest loan that the City received through the Clean Water Revolving Fund with a payback period of 20 years. 
	Pictures taken from a remote controlled drone show the magnitude of the project.  According to Hudson, the drone photos were provided courtesy of one of the project's engineers.  
	The plant was built in 1969 and uses an older biological treatment process.  This expansion and update project. includes construction of a new influent sewer, mechanical screens, influent pump station, grit removal, oxidation ditches, final clarifiers, chlorine contact structure and appurtenances. Also included are modifications to the existing SCADA, electrical system and aerobic digester.


PICTURE INFORMATION:
CLARIFIERS:  The first picture shows the two new clarifiers. One is full of water as it has just completed the leak test (and passed!). Note the cars and  trucks for an idea of scale.

CLARIFIERS & CHLORINE BASIN: The second picture shows the new clarifiers and the darker rectangular structure almost center picture, is  the new chlorine contact chamber. When completed, the chamber will consist of approximately 1,800 cubic yards of concrete. In the upper right you can see our two old clarifiers. Note the height of the walls of the old clarifiers to the new ones. When all the dirt that has been removed for construction is replaced, the walls of the new clarifiers will rise only about two feet above ground, similar to the old clarifiers!

OXIDATION DITCHES: The third picture is our new oxidation ditches. These are mainly constructed of concrete and will be 416 feet long when completed.
