Danis Building Construction Co. has been awarded a $15.8 million construction project for the city of Miamisburg.
The Miamisburg-based construction company received the contract from Miamisburg this week for improvements to the city’s Water Reclamation Facility along Dayton-Cincinnati Pike, part of a larger master plan to improve its water and sewer infrastructure.
“The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate aging wastewater infrastructure and reduce sewer system overflows to meet regulatory requirement,” according to city documents.
The city says the upgrades will help expand the capacity of the facility and help it better handle high volume during wet weather.
Among work Danis will perform at the facility are a new pre-treatment facility, a new holding tank and pump station, and decommissioning the underground fuel tank for the existing generator. The city worked with consultant Hazen and Sawyer, P.C. on the project.
The city said it qualified for an Ohio EPA 20-year standard interest rate loan for about $19 million to cover costs. The loan is at 2.24 percent. The city also increased water and sewer utility rates to address needs for infrastructure improvements.
Work is expected to begin in January and take 24 months to complete.
