Tata & Howard was retained by the Town of Franklin to evaluate the wastewater pump station that serves the Franklin Industrial Park. The pump station had been experiencing capacity issues and periodic overflows. The design by Tata & Howard included the replacement of two existing wastewater pumps with 350 new gpm capacity pumps with variable frequency drives. The project also included a substantial increase in the volume of the station’s wet well through the construction of additional precast concrete tanks. The work also included upgrades to the existing alarm and communications systems.
