As we post drone shots on our social media, you may have noticed water being housed in various structures. That’s because hydrostatic testing is underway.
When the contractor completes the different basin structures on the main AWP site, there is a specification requirement to perform hydrostatic testing to check for leaks or defects.
During this process, the contractor is following a water management plan and moves/pumps the water from one basin/structure to another. This cuts down on cost and is also more sustainable.
The water being used to test the structures is recycled water from the Ray Stoyer Water Recycling Facility. This recycled water contains nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. These nutrients combined with sunlight over time will produce algae and the greenish water pictured below.
