Wastewater Treatment Facility – Phase I and Phase II Improvements

PKG’s experience at the Fargo Wastewater Treatment Facility dates all the way back to 1999! Most recently, our team has been working on a three-phased project to make major improvements and increase capacity. The first phase starting in 2015 brought major mechanical upgrades to the existing facility. PKG was awarded Phase IIA in 2018, which involved additional mechanical improvements to prepare the facility for the most recent expansion. PKG was the successful low bidder on Phase IIB in early 2020. This expansion is the largest of the three phases and is the largest project to date for PKG. A new IFAS (Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge) facility involved 14,000 cubic yards of structural concrete, a large portion of the 32,000 cubic yards for the project. A sheeted retention system was required to support the 42’ excavation of the new wet and dry walls in the headworks building. Extensive site piping, including a 54-in raw sewage influent line surrounds the 15-building expansion. Maintaining plant operations with minimal disruptions adds a major challenge to the complex construction. With a May 2024 anticipated completion, the 3-year project will enable the City of Fargo to increase its capacity by 100MGD.
