The site is located along the northerly side of County Route 99 in Montgomery, NY. The parcel also abuts Interstate 84 to the north. Regional Builders, Inc. constructed a 93,500-SF freight transfer facility. During the approval process, three wells were drilled. Two of the wells were dry wells. The third well was drilled to a depth of 500 feet with 80 feet of casing. The facility has an average water demand of 2,550 GPD and a maximum water demand of 5,200 GPD.
All water quality parameters were within the recommended limits for drinking water, except for chloride and hardness levels. KC designed a treatment system to treat the water for the chloride levels that were found in the water with a reverse osmosis system. The overall system includes a green sand filter as well as a water softener for hardness reduction to pretreat the water prior to the reverse osmosis system duplex softening system in the treatment building. A separate treatment building at the facility site houses the green sand filter, water softeners, reverse osmosis system, hypochlorinators, chlorine contact tank, and the variable-speed pumping system. The water quality, after treatment for chloride, is now acceptable according to New York State Department of Health standards.
