EVANSVILLE, Ind.

The Sunrise Pump Station is set to be completed in late 2020. “It’s a 40 million gallon a day pumping station and the reason we have to build it here is because we don’t have the real estate where our east treatment plant is today,” says Mounts. “It requires a massive amount of area.” At the end of the summer, Mounts says crews poured more than 600 cubic yards of concrete inside a large 40-foot hole. They are now installing rebar to reinforce the structure that will house more than just a pumping station. “It’s going to be a multi-purpose facility,” Mounts explains. “It will also house our laboratory for wastewater treatment. We do a tremendous amount of testing.” 500ton Injection Molding Machine This facility is just...
