Water Plant Ribbon Cutting

 

St. Bernard Parish Officials Celebrate the Ribbon Cutting of the New Water Treament Plant


St. Bernard Parish officials officially dedicated the New Water Treatment Plant located on Palmisano Boulevard in Chalmette.  The facility, which cost nearly 32 Million Dollars, was funded by a Community Development Block Grant and LA FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant.

 

On hand for the ribbon cutting were Parish President David Peralta, Councilman Ray Lauga, Office of Community Development (OCD) Executive Director Pat Forbes, Representatives from St. Bernard Chamber and representatives from Burk Kleinpeter, Inc., Project Engineers. Parish President David Peralta thanked OCD and FEMA for their partnership and funding on this important project.

 

With the completion of the construction of the new Water Treatment Plant, St. Bernard Parish now has a firm capacity of 12 million gallons per day (mgd).  The plant currently operates at 7 to 8 million gallons per day (mgd) and will have the ability to handle additional demands required by population growth in the parish.   The plant was constructed so that all vital systems and equipment are above the base flood elevation, which will allow for minimal down time due to potential hurricane damage. The buildings and facilities are designed to withstand 130 mph winds.  The control building and chemical buildings are made of solid concrete and concrete filled block with precast concrete roof panels.   The plant is manned 24 hours a day with 5 operators.
