JOE M. STEELE PLANT RENOVATIONS (BWD-57-SP)
Beaver Water District, Lowell, Arkansas
The original Joe M. Steele Water Treatment Plant was constructed in the late 1960s as a 10-MGD facility and expanded in 1972 to 35-MGD and again in 1976 to 50-MGD. The raw water source is Beaver Lake. The Joe M. Steele plant and subsequent expansions were designed by MWY. The facilities include treated waster pumping station to the cities of Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville.
Due to the age of these facilities, MWY designed construction plans and specifications for a complete renovation of the plant. This was done in partnership with Montgomery-Watson-Harza, a firm based in Sacramento, California.
