Storage Tank Cleaning and Painting (Scheduled 2016)
The Department will begin work after Labor Day for a contractor to clean and paint one of our water storage tanks, located on Cemetery Hill.  We perform regularly scheduled inspections of these vital water storage tanks to insure safe, clean drinking water.  As part of our preventive maintenance program, we will drain and clean the North Storage Tank (ST1) during September and October.  After the cleaning and interior inspection is completed, the lower section of the tank will be repainted to restore protection for the steel tank.   The tank was constructed in 2000, and using standard practices for water storage tanks we are completing this work as our commitment to provide the best drinking water possible for our customers.  

Estimated Project cost is $36,500 with completion due by November 1, 2016.   We have two (2) water storage tanks; the other tank will be cleaned in 2017.  Cleaning is expected every 15 years, painting is normally required after 20-25 years.  ST1 was showing some early paint problems on the lower section, hence the reason we are painting this section.  Eventually, the interior and complete exterior will require painting to protect these high value assets. 


Replacement Waterlines (Scheduled 2016)
The Department is finalizing plans for waterline replacements on several streets in the area south of Morse and east of Nettleton.  The Waterline Replacement Program is a multi-year Capital Improvement Project (CIP) which is needed to replaced aged waterlines susceptible to failure.  We plan to replace sections of pipelines on Cornell between Morse and Spring, Emerson between Morse and Murphy and Sheidley between Murphy and Pine (Insley).  The existing four-inch (4") cast iron and older PVC pipes will be replaced with new six-inch (6") and eight-inch (8") pipes, which will improve flow, pressure and fire protection.  The Project is scheduled to start in the Spring 2016 and will take approximately 2-3 months to complete.

Estimated Project cost is $400,000 to replace 3500 feet of pipe and connecting service lines to the meter service.  New meter pits are included in the project.  Once completed, this new construction will provide 60+ years of reliable water service for residents.  Eventually, the entire area in this section of the City will have new reliable waterlines to provide clean, safe drinking water of the citizens of Bonner Springs.  

Wastewater Treatment Plant Screening Project
The Department is in the process of additional upgrades and renovations at the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to improve operations.   New solids removal equipment is being added to provide better pump protection and improve efficiency.  The new equipment will be purchased separately and then installed by contractors.  Air flow equipment is also being replaced ti ensure good air within the building, avoiding premature failure of the new equipment. 

The project is being overseen by Department staff and our City Engineer. 

Expected Project Cost = $175,000
