Fru-Con Construction Wins Contract for Virginia Treatment Plant Expansion Project

Nov. 10, 2010
Expanded facility will more than double treatment capacity

Fru-Con Construction has been awarded a $10.2 million contract to expand the Winters Branch Pump Station in Manassas, Va. The project award was made by the Upper Occoquan Sewage Authority (UOSA).

Fru-Con will construct new facilities to more than double the capacity of the Winters Branch facility from 7.2 million gal a day (mgd) to 17.5 mgd. In addition to refurbishing the existing pump station, Fru-Con will build a new submersible pump station, a new gravity sewer, a new emergency generator and surge tank building, a new flow meter and valve vault, and new odor control facilities. It also will run 10,000 ft of new 24-in. force main.

The project is part of UOSA’s response to rapid population growth in the 11-billion-gal Occoquan Reservoir watershed in northern Virginia.

Winters Branch is a sister facility to the Flat Branch Pump Station, where Fru-Con constructed a $40.3 million project initiated in 2009. Many of the professionals who managed construction at Flat Branch will maintain their roles for the Winters Branch expansion.

“Our ability to deploy a seasoned project team, experienced in working with UOSA, enabled us to be very competitive and present excellent value to the owner,” said Fru-Con Senior Project Manager Osama Madkour.
