The City of Ludington retained FTCH to complete extensive upgrades to their Water Treatment Plant. An innovative design approach was used to increase the rated capacity of the facility from 3.2-MGD to 8.0-MGD without increasing the footprint of the building. A large degree of planning and sequencing, including multiple plant-wide shutdowns, were necessary to accomplish these improvements.
FTCH has also assisted the City with distribution system planning, having completed their Reliability Study, General Plan, and Water Asset Management Plan. Current work includes the development of GIS mapping and water service inventory under a Pilot Drinking Water Community Water Supply Grant awarded to the City in 2018.
