The Frederick [Maryland] County Division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management awarded a $72.9 million contract to Fru-Con Construction Corp.'s Eastern Regional Office, based in Woodbridge, Va. The contract is for expanding the existing New Design Road Water Treatment Plant in Frederick County.

Fru-Con will construct new facilities that will nearly triple the existing treatment plant capacity from 8.8 to 25 million gallons a day. The expansion includes a pre-sedimentation basin, rapid mixers, three flocculation basins, three sedimentation basins, six filters, four filter effluent pumps, an ultraviolet disinfection system and a high-service pump station. The project also entails modifications and upgrades to the existing sedimentation basins, rapid mix area and filters. A new backup power generation system will be provided, according to Fru-Con Controller Ralf Fuchs and Senior Project Manager Joe Duffy.

Rummel, Klepper & Kahl of Baltimore, Md. designed the project in association with New York City-based Hazen and Sawyer.
