Project Summary

The City of Perryville was facing several challenges relating to aging facilities at its Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF). To address these challenges, the City embarked on a Progressive Design-Build Project to evaluate alternatives, design the selected treatment alternative, and construct a treatment facility that achieves all discharge limit requirements while managing the costs of the facility and the user rates to City’s residents. The Design-Build Team of Robinson & HDR Engineering was selected to complete the project.

Perryville’s WWTF serves the entire City population of 8,500 people (2021 Population), as well as the Perryville Industrial Park. This project provides the City with a new 9 MGD peak flow plant that will provide a more efficient operation with allowances for future expansion. To provide an extra level of treatment and capacity to possibly meet future requirements, this plant has a tertiary filter system. The project also includes a new administration building with a garage and electrical room.

Robinson self-performed more than half of the work on the project, including the influent pump station, structural concrete, mechanical, sludge handling, pre-engineered metal buildings, and administration building. Subcontracted work included engineering, electrical, controls, sitework, yard piping, concrete flatwork, miscellaneous metals, rebar installation, HVAC, plumbing, and painting.

This project was the first State Revolving Fund collaborative delivery project following the 2016 Missouri legislation enabling public utilities to use progressive design-build, construction manager at-risk or fixed-price design-build.
