City of Sullivan

Cochran was selected to design Well and Well House No. 12 for the City of Sullivan.  The Well supplements the City of Sullivan’s water supply to Menard’s for their in-house manufacturing of concrete landscaping products.

The well is a 30HP pitless submersible unit capable of providing 150 GPM.  The Well pumps into Well House No. 12 where the flow is measured and gas chlorination are added to the water for disinfection.  This area typically has Trichloroethylene (TCE) in the groundwater which requires an air-stripping process.  The water, as of today, does not test positive for TCE’s, however, Well House No. 12 is equipped with a treatment room sized for an air stripper if TCE’s become present in the future.  Construction of the well and well house was complete in the Summer of 2017.
