Aspinwall Water Treatment Plant
Pittsburgh, PA United States | 1989
This $275 million, 1,010-ton (916 tonnes) water treatment plant replaces the original facility, providing the Detroit Water and Sewerage Dept. with potable water at a level that exceeds existing and proposed regulatory standards. The new plant processes over four times more million gallons of water per day than the original plant. Typically, water treatment plants are constructed of pre-cast concrete; thus making steel construction and hot-dip galvanizing a non-factor. The original specification was abandoned during the early stages due to the galvanizer's convincing argument about the durability and low life-cycle maintenance cost of hot-dip galvanizing.
