Schultz and Summers Engineering Awarded for Hayti Project
by TJ Stroebl
Tonka Equipment Company
Hayti was in need of an upgrade in their water infrastructure, as their 90-year-old pipes were delivering drinking water laden with iron and manganese. Schultz and Summers Engineering helped attain the necessary financial support and designed an innovative water treatment system with along with cost effective distribution system upgrades. The City of Hayti was approved for a federal stimulus grant of more than $3 million, and production soon followed.
The water treatment plant used Tonka pressure filters for iron and manganese removal. Two horizontal pressure filters were supplied for the application, featuring end-piping, header-lateral underdrains, and air scour to enhance backwash.
Congratulations to Schultz and Summers Engineering for their award!
