MUD PLATTE WEST WATER TREATMENT PLANT
Douglas County, NE
Metropolitan Utilities District (MUD), started construction in spring of 2004 on the $352 million Platte West Water Treatment Plant after 30 years of planning and development. The plant which has a 100-million-gallon-per day capacity is the largest in the Nebraska’s water industry since 1994.
The Platte West Treatment Plant covers 400,000 square feet. The plant contains enough concrete to build 34 miles of highway (120,000 yards), and contains 132 miles of wire. The well field for this plant covers approximately 1,900 acres of land and contains 42 vertical wells.
Engineered Controls began working with MUD in 2004 as part of the original construction team. MUD wanted a contractor that could deliver a state of the art building management system with open communications protocols to obtain the flexibility and interoperability they desired. The combination of Engineered Controls and Honeywell’s WEBs product met all of MUD’s needs then, today and will continue to well into the future.
The building management system consists of a Honeywell WEBs system architecture and controls a mixture of mechanical and electrical equipment including AHUs, MAUs, VFDs, VAVs, Chillers, Pumps, HXs, EFs, UHs, and a snow melt systems.
MUD serves more than 197,000 customers with high quality water that meets or surpasses every federal and state standard for safe drinking water, and required the highest standards in all aspects of this facility.
