September Virtual Presentation and Meeting. DELCORA PS-6: Design and Construction Innovation
To bring members together, EPWPCOA hosted the September Meeting and Presentation via a webinar on Friday, September 18. Approximately 60 screens tuned in for the event. The presentation took place of an in-person tour and showed off the design and construction innovation for DELCORA's facility in Chester, PA.

Tony Elberti, P.E. of Gannett Fleming and Mike DiSantis of DELCORA discussed the unique features of this project which included the design and construction of a self-cleaning wet well, featuring large submersible pumps and an innovative odor control design. This project featured a regulatory deadline but the design, operations and construction team were able to meet the deadline and save significant money for DELCORA. The presentation included video footage of the construction over a 12-month timeframe and a BIM model of the building.

After the presentation, members of EPWPCOA stayed for a business meeting which consisted of committee and officer reports. Officers for 2021 were nominated, and bylaws were revisited.

Thank you to our presenters, and to everyone who helped facilitate the meeting and presentation.

The meeting and event went well with virtually no hitches!

A recording of the event can be found here.
