Burnt Hill Park project presented at the Annual Connecticut Recreation and Parks Association Conference
Burnt Hill Park, located in Hebron Connecticut, was the subject of a presentation at the Annual CRPA conference held at the Mohegan Sun. The project, which included five athletic fields and amenities including a park operations building, pavilion, bathroom building and walking trails, was designed with Nathan L. Jacobson & Associates as the prime consultant and constructed in 2008-2009. The park is a great example of a multi-use facility which incorporates recreational athletic fields in a park like setting consistent with the rural character and nature of the Town of Hebron.
The presentation, which was given by Tom Fenton, P.E., Principal Engineer at Nathan L. Jacobson & Associates and Mike Fortuna, AIA, of TLB Architects, focused on the construction process and project management. A prior presentation to CRPA by the same team, focused on the design, permitting and approval process.
Charlemont Massachusetts Wastewater Treatment Plant
The Charlemont Massachusetts Wastewater Treatment Plant, which is situated at the confluence of the Deerfield River and Mill Brook, was severely damaged during tropical storm Irene. Fast flowing flood waters completely inundated the treatment plant site causing significant damage to the plant’s recirculating sand filters, underground treatment tanks and overall site. Flood waters scoured the sand filter interiors causing significant deposits of river silt and debris. The Charlemont Sewer District retained Nathan L. Jacobson & Associates to design repairs to the wastewater treatment facilities, which included contingency operations, removal of large fiberglass chamber covers, removal and disposal of all silt laden filter media, underdrain stone and distribution piping, and removal of river silt from treatment tanks and pump chambers. Filter chambers were cleaned and provided with new underdrain stone, filter media and piping and wastewater pumps were repaired and reinstalled. Brian Curtis, P.E., served as design engineer on the project. Treatment facilities were brought back on line in 2012 and are once again producing a high quality effluent.
