Passaic Valley Water Commission ProjectAt the Little Falls Water Treatment Plant, work has progressed through the winter months. Force Drilling has continued the soil nailing earth retention processwith an estimated completion in early April.The field investigation for the electrical short circuit coordination study was alsoconducted during the winter months and the study is currently under review byCH2M.Several samples of the soil that has been excavated and stockpiled on site hasbeen tested and determined to be nonhazardous and noncontaminated based onNJDEP regulations, and acceptable for disposal at a clean fill location. In earlyFebruary, excavation and material haul-off began and disposal is taking place atPPark Material Recycling in Prospect Park, NJ. PPark is a former basalt quarrythat operated for over 100 years and is now being refilled with clean fill and targeted for a future large-scale development project.The subsurface utility investigation work has been ongoing with the services of Underground Services, Inc. to detect and uncover existingutilities and or other obstructions using vacuum excavation. Once all the subsurface information is obtained, a determination can be madeif the routing of duct banks and installation of electrical manholes as shown on the contract drawings is possible. The subsurface utilityinvestigation also reduces the risk of damaging any existing utilities while excavating for the electrical duct bank and manholes.Looking toward the immediate future, site activities will include the completion of soil nail walls SN-1 and SN-2 and the construction ofthe mechanically stabilized earth wall (MSE wall). The MSE wall will tie-in with the soil nail and shotcrete wall to form a large retaining wallthat will run behind the future generator building. Upon completion of the MSE Wall, the Generator Building foundation micropiles willbe installed.Southeast Philadelphia WPCGWith the preplanning complete, Stone Hill Contracting began mobilizing in early February. Stone Hill Contracting's demolition subcontractor, Athena Contacting, started the first phase of the project with the removal of the existing mechanical equipment currently installed intank #2. Weather permitting, Athena Contracting should be finished with the work in tank #2 by press time.The Clarifier Newsletter ispublished quarterly byUpon completion of the demolition work in tank #2, Stone Hill Contracting minority painting subcontractor, Fine Painting, will commence with the preparation of the tank walls allowing for the final coating systemapplication during late March. Once the demolition in tank #2 is complete, work of the same will originatein tank #1 with the process scheduled to repeat every five weeks allowing the completion of seven tanksduring 2018 with the balance to finish during 2019.Stone Hill Contracting Co., Inc.PO Box 1370Doylestown, PA 18901Bayshore R.S.A.

Stone Hill has also completed the installation and manual start-up of thenew APG-Neuros turbo blower, and re-installed the two existing centrifuge blowers, refurbished by Excelsior Blower. M&R Insulation hasbegun insulating the new 24” discharge line and MBE Mark III Electric is diligently working on getting all the new instrumentation powered,so that PCS Systems can begin integrating the new system.Page 2Volume Fourteen, Issue Two

Sandy Hook WWTPStone Hill Contracting has reached substantial completion on the original contractfor the National Park Service Sandy Hook Waste Water Treatment Plant. The designfor the additional equalization system has been finalized and Stone Hill and their subcontractors are working to install this system. This design re-purposes two existingprimary clarifiers and converts them to two equalization tanks. The tanks and clarifiermechanisms are to be cleaned and receive a new coat of paint. New pumps are goingto be installed that will take the influent from the equalization tanks and pump it tothe headworks system installed under the original contract. Currently the mechanicaland painting portions of the equalization system are nearly complete. With the delivery of the pumps expected in by press time, Stone Hill Contracting hopes to havethis system on line by the end of March.OCUA Area-Wide Clarifier RehabilitationThe rehabilitation of five clarifiers has been completed at the Ocean County project. The scope of the project was a combination of coatings andmechanical installations. The coating work was one of the first to be selfperformed by Stone Hill of this scale. CTS aided Stone Hill in the training,supplying, and advised execution techniques of the coatings that were installed and they are pleased to report that the finished product exceededexpectations. The first step was to have Aulffo Painting perform the highpressure water blasting and surface prep. Then Stone Hill Contractinginstalled a Saeureisen concrete surface coating over the entire interior ofthe tank. Once completed, there were two coats of epoxy coating sprayedon as well as a urethane and sealer by Saeureisen on the upper portion ofall five tanks. In addition to the coatings, Stone Hill Contracting was contracted to demolish the existing five clarifier mechanisms and install all newstainless steel mechanisms, supplied by Envirodyne Systems, Inc. Some additional workload included deep excavation and yard piping, sludge collectionscrews and pumps, piping modifications and new grout floors in the clarifiers.Wanaque South Pump Station UpgradeSometimes you just can’t beat Murphy’s law, and there are other sayingsthat were created for this reason such as “you can’t teach and old dognew tricks”, or “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make himdrink”. All apply to trying to make a 14-year-old VFD run like new. StoneHill Contracting took all the steps necessary in trying to bring this unitup to date, but to no avail, once in the run mode it showed the signs ofsitting for such a long time. In turn, this created a what do we do nowsituation. With the traveling screen issue, which began plaguing the authority earlier, Stone Hill only had the availability of running pumps 3 & 4,with 4 being connected to the outdated and broken VFD as describedabove. In turn, the Authority directed them to remove the old VFD andreplace it by relocating the new VFD 6 unit into its place, in a timeframeof three weeks. It is a testament to having reputable subcontractors atyour side, Scott Testing, Spark Electric (with their rigging sub) and Keystone Electric all tightened up their belt a notch and completed the operation in two weeks. This enabled the Authority to perform an early PLCdiagnosis and start up. In turn, Envirolutions and Vibration Solutionscould complete the vibration and start up testing not only on pump 4 butto also complete the testing on pump 2. Currently, NJDWSC is reviewing their options on a new starter replacement along with the replacement of the three traveling screens.The Clarifier NewsletterPage 3

Camden County Municipal Utilities AuthorityStone Hill is scheduled to mobilize to CCMUA, starting in May. Site work will begin with the installation of piles for the generator enginepads, and continue on with other equipment foundations, piping and electrical work. Major equipment items being provided by Anaergia arescheduled to be arriving at the project site in August and September of this year. Stone Hill is looking forward to working with our designbuild partners and CCMUA to get construction underway.Joint Meeting Overhead Monorail ProjectJoint Meeting/Elizabeth WWTP has issued Stone Hill Contracting a contract to replace their existing screen single rail monorail with a new double rail system. The new overhead cranesystem will allow the maintenance crew to align and adjustcorrectly over the screen as it is being raised from the influentchannel, which they cannot do with the single rail system.Work is expected to commence around late July or early August of this year. Sissco Crane is preparing the shop drawingfor review, upon approval it will take around 14 to 16 weeksfor fabrication. During the fabrication time, Specialty Supportswill begin fabrication on the new hanger system and supportbeams for the crane. Stone Hill will need to perform as buildsof the spacing between the buildings roof support beams toallow correct fabrication of the monorail support beams.Sounds pretty easy except for the limited working area and theactive screens. Working around the screens will be performedoff staging and scaffolding as required to get up and around theactive screens. Travis Electric, Inc. will perform the new electrical installation and connections to the new crane systemalong with all the removals and disconnects of the currentelectrical system. During the installation phase of work, any and all of the equipment must be removable to allow any repairs to the screensthat should arise. Also, the existing monorail system must stay active until a majority of the new monorail system is installed. Should beinteresting at least.Borough of Wharton One Million Gallon Elevated TankThe Wharton water tank now flows water to the town residents. Thenew tank now equalizes flow and levels with the towns existing watertank. This works by the theory that two structures at the same elevationand interconnected with a common line will equalize each other. Wateris supplied by the towns own wells and at times by purchased water fromother water authorities as needed. Water to and from the tank is monitored by a single influent/effluent pipe line, with a mag meter the readsflows in and flows out. An interior altitude valve controls the tank levels,which is matched to the level in the other existing water tank.The control room is equipped with an RTU panel sending signals to thetowns utility division main control room. From their operations room,they can monitor the tank level by the level indicating transmitter, flowsin and out from the mag meter, interior tank mixer operation, HVAC andFAA light operations. The structure is protected by and intrusion alarmsystem which also reports to the main control room and the properauthority.Stone Hill would like to thank the following for their expertise, workmanship and efforts in completing this unique project: Mid AtlanticStorage Systems, MBE Mark 111 Electric, Fitzpatrick Excavating & Paving, Cooper Plumbing, Hays Sheet Metal, Kappe Associates, AulffoPainting, Freehold Carpentry, CMU Construction, Statewide Fence, Diamond Sand & Gravel (Sparta Concrete), PCS Systems, Able Overhead Doors, Benchmark Architectural, M & R Insulation, Flynn Photography and the engineering firms of CHA Companies, Mott MacDonald and Wharton’s local building inspectors and supervisor’s.Page 4Volume Fourteen, Issue Two
