Shakamak State Park Regionalization & Wastewater System Improvements

HWC completed a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) for funding through the Indiana Finance Authority (IFA)’s State Revolving Fund (SRF) Program for this project. The PER was prepared to address several needs including:

  • Significant inflow and infiltration in the Shakamak State Park collection system
  • Aging and deteriorating equipment and controls at the Shakamak Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF)
  • Alleviating DNR from having to operate a wastewater treatment facility
  • Addressing the hydraulic capacity issues and difficulty in meeting ammonia limits at Jasonville’s existing WWTF

To address the needs discussed above, the recommended project in the PER includes Shakamak State Park collection system rehabilitation, wastewater conveyance infrastructure from Shakamak State Park to the City of Jasonville’s WWTF, and upgrades to Jasonville’s existing WWTF. The Shakamak State Park collection system improvements include gravity sewer rehabilitation, consisting of lining approximately 3,745 LF of gravity sewer mains via Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) along with other miscellaneous repairs and upgrades to the Park’s collection system. The wastewater conveyance improvements include upgrading Shakamak’s existing Lift Station Number Five with new pumps and installing approximately three miles of force main from the lift station to Jasonville’s WWTF for treatment along with decommissioning Shakamak’s existing WWTF. The improvements to Jasonville’s WWTF include removal of the lagoon cover system, installation of a new Submerged Attached Growth Reactor (SAGR) Treatment System, and additional wet weather flow storage.

The project has been bid and is expected to be completed in 2024. The construction cost is $8.2 million.
