Belmont Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant
Owner: Indianapolis DPW
Location: Indianapolis, IN
Infrastructure Engineering, Inc. provided the site development and stormwater management design. In order to minimize the construction cost and to avoid the lengthy environmental permit process, IEI reused almost 500,000 cubic yards of incinerated ash, which had accumulated from decades of operations of the plant, by constructing landscaped berms around the entire site. These berms not only eliminated the need for offsite disposal, but they also provided a landscaped buffer for the plant from adjacent property owners and heavily traveled thoroughfare.
The design elements included a parking lot, roads, retaining walls, grading and utility details. IEI also designed a new trash drop-off facility for citizens which streamlined the operations and also improved safety.
