Jim Beam Waste Water Settling Tank Bypass
If there is one thing that people think of the Bluegrass for (other than horses) is bourbon, and PECCO, Inc. does a lot of work for local distilleries who produce this bourbon. The most recent project was for Jim Beam. PECCO, Inc. was brought in to install a system to bypass one of waste water settling tanks. This was done by installing two pumps and an open top frac tank with a weir to partition the tank into two smaller sections to allow the solids to settle out before flowing into the other section to be pumped out. Both pumps were also controlled with floats, which automatically starts the pump when the water level reaches a certain height, eliminating the need for an attendant to monitor the pumps. With the tank bypassed, it was able to be cleaned and have the necessary maintenance completed.
City of Georgetown Spring Channel Cleanout
Built in 1911, the Georgetown Spring Channel is the first place water arrives when it exits the spring that supplies water to the City of Georgetown. In the 105 years it has been in operation, it had only been cleaned out twice and was due for its third. PECCO, Inc. completed the job using four 6 inch pumps and two 4 inch pumps to redirect the 2,700 gallons per minute the plant pulls out of the spring into another part of the settling channel. This drained the channel of water and enabled PECCO, Inc. to remove the sediment that had settled in the bottom of the channel.
