Larson Design Group (LDG) will do its part to help maintain the natural beauty of one of Pennsylvania’s state parks, having been retained for a project at Moraine State Park in Butler County – named by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) as one of the “25 Must-See Pennsylvania State Parks.”
The $2 million project consists of the rehabilitation of five existing pumping stations and portions of the sewer system on the north shore of the park’s main feature, the 3,200-acre Lake Arthur. LDG will convert existing drypit/wetpit type pump stations to submersible pumping stations and replace the electrical service and electrical control panels for each station. The firm was authorized to proceed with the project in June of 2018 and is currently in the final stages of design work and preparing permits for submission to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
“We’re proud of the LDG team that is helping to improve an absolutely stunning Pennsylvania state park,” said Greg Cummings, PE, Director of LDG’s Water/Wastewater Division. “It’s a testament to the trust that the DCNR has in us and to our expertise in water/wastewater solutions for a wide range of projects.”
The Moraine State Park project is part of a five-year open-ended contract with the DCNR, with whom LDG has a long and productive relationship. Previous projects include a similar pumpstation design project at Neshaminy State Park in Bucks County and water/wastewater projects for other state parks.
