Water Plant Repairs: Filter Unit Failure

Project Costs:
$2.6 million

Facility Capacity:
2.0 MGD

Following the catastrophic failure of  the filter unit at the Village/Town of Mount Kisco’s water treatment plant, Delaware provided engineering services to the community that included:

  • Determining the cause of the failure
  • Submitting the damages for an insurance claim
  • Evaluating the extent of the damage
  • Determining the scope of work needed to replace the major treatment equipment.

Prior to Delaware’s involvement, because the problem with the unit could not be identified, the plant operated for 18 months with the damaged unit out of service.

Due to Delaware’s efforts, the insurance company agreed to cover the damages, and $1,800,000 in repairs were funded through claim proceeds.
