CIP Monthly Status Report – August 2018

Backup generator being lifted
In August, the Headworks Critical Improvements and Iron Salt Feed Station Projects advanced through Stage Gate 7 to the post-construction phase. The Construction-Enabling Improvement Project achieved Beneficial Use and the Plant Instrument Air System Upgrade Project contractor competed functional testing.

The Advanced Facility Control and Meter Replacement Phase 1 Project team conducted a hazardous material site walkthrough with the contractor. The City opened bids for the Blower Improvements Project and the team expects to return to TPAC and Council to recommend award of a construction contract in October 2018.

The Digester and Thickener Facilities Upgrade Project is completing replacement of an existing wye structure and pipes.

Four new engine generators were delivered as a part of the Cogeneration Facility Project. They will use a combination of biogas (a by-product of the anaerobic digestion process) and natural gas provided by PG&E to produce 100 percent of the electrical power and heat needed to operate the RWF through the next 10-15 years. It is anticipated the new engines will run on up to a 50-50 blend of digester gas and natural gas.
