KIMZEE RAW WATER INTAKE ON LAKE DEGRAY

HYDRAULIC CAPACITY OF 24-MGD
Client Clarksville Light and Water
Scope Of Work $1.1 Million
Schedule Completed in 1995

Project Detail

The Kimzey Regional Water District Raw Water Intake was completed in 1995 as part of the Western One-Half Water System Improvements project for the district. MWY designed both the water treatment plant and associated intake structure as a consultant to Summerford Engineering.

The initial hydraulic capacity of the intake and 18-inch diameter raw water pipeline is 6-MGD.

The water treatment plant was initially constructed as a 2-MGD facility with the capability to easily expand to 6-MGD. The structure has a hydraulic capacity of 12-MGD, and consists of a ten-foot diameter reinforced concrete wet well with four intake ports, each equipped with a stainless steel fixed drum type screen with air backwash.

Normal water depth for the intake is approximately 35 feet. The intake has two pumps with a combined capacity of 2-MGD housed in a 400 square foot building which also contains the motor control center and a potassium permanganate feed system.

Special environmental and aesthetic considerations were included in the design of the intake in response to requirements of the state and federal regulatory agencies.
