City of Wichita put this project out for competitive bid and UMC had the low bid. The project overview was the labor and equipment needed to safely remove existing flocculator paddles and shafts, replace shafts with new ones provided by the City and reattach paddles once the City had finished repairing them. The difficulty in this project was safely handling the weight of the solid steel shafts. Use of a boom truck was needed in order to raise and lower shafts into the flocculator basin. Only minor challenges arose during the project but UMC and City employees were able to overcome those obstacles and complete the project.
