Delaware Engineering was retained by the Village of Middleburgh to evaluate their existing water supply and distribution system and design the necessary improvements to increase water quality and pressure. The project was funded through a DWSRF grant/loan and included replacement of an old water tank with a new ½ million gallon storage tank and installation of a secondary back-up well and secure water main crossing under the Schoharie Creek. The water plant is located within the floodway, therefore flood resilient design was critical and HEC-RAS floodplain modeling was required. The existing well house was rebuilt and flood-proofed, and the well and storage tanks were automated to eliminate manual operations. Water was extended to homes with contaminated wells and unserved areas of the Village and old, undersized, and corroded water mains were replaced. The project was completed and operational by August 2006.
