Xylem Provides High-tech Bypass and Peace-of- mind During Kiski Valley Treatment Plant Upgrade

Kiski Valley Water Pollution Control Authority (KVWPCA)


To stay in compliance with state Environmental Protection Agency requirements, the Kiski Valley Water Pollution Control Authority (KVWPCA) in Pennsylvania had to double the capacity of one of its plants – from 15 million gallons per day (MGD) facility to 31 MGD. The large-scale job called for outside expertise and innovative solutions.

As part of the expansion process, KVWPCA needed to de- commission their existing influent pumping station and tie into
a new influent pump station once construction was completed. To enable all that to happen, KVWPCA – with help from an engineering contractor and Xylem – built a bypass pumping system that could handle the flow as the construction process was taking place.
