Upon completion, the Euclid MBR plant will be the ﬁfth largest MBR plant in the world. Under direct contract to Kokosing Industrial, the Akron Rebar Company team was a critical construction ally in the $98M project, in which we fabricated and installed 2,300 tons of reinforcement steel.
Easterly Tunnel Dewatering Pump Station (TDPS)
Cleveland Water has an extensive distribution system utilizing 4 primary pump stations encompassing a 640 square mile service area, and servicing a population of approximately 5 million across Northeast Ohio. The Easterly Pump Station project was the second major component scheduled as part of the $3B Easterly CSO Plan Improvements Project and was one of the largest combined sewer overflow (CSO) pump station enterprises ever undertaken in the United States.
The pump station is situated 230 feet underground, is approximately 185′ long by 45′ wide by 60′ high. The main shaft is approximately 45′ in diameter and contains an elevator, main stairwell, and an equipment removal shaft. Akron Rebar Company lead the way by fabricating and installing 2,000 tons of reinforcement steel, as part of a collaborative effort in the construction of this huge combined sewer overflow improvements program.
