Project Description

The State of Vermont hired Otter Creek Engineering to upgrade a wastewater pump station originally intended for the Interstate 91 Vermont Welcome Center.  With funding from the Federal Highway Administration, Otter Creek Engineering upgraded the station with modern pumps and a state-of-the-art SCADA system, which integrated the pump station into Brattleboro’s main plant control system.

Alongside the upgrades, Otter Creek Engineering utilized a technique known as “ice-pigging” on the existing force main to increase the station’s flow by an additional 25%.
