Town of Clayton Water Reclamation Program
The Town of Clayton continues to make progress on improving our wastewater infrastructure with the largest project in the Town's history. Construction is underway on multiple components, and the program is expected to be completed over the next three years. In general, construction will include surveying, vegetation removal, environmental controls, earthwork, concrete work, building the facility components, large equipment deliveries, electrical work, testing, commissioning, and final site restoration. Construction will occur in phases for each program component, so some activities may occur simultaneously or iteratively, depending on the location. HDR is assisting the Town as a project advisor. For more information, please contact Town staff at WRFinfo@townofclaytonnc.org.
- Sam's Branch Water Reclamation Facility (WRF)
- Little Creek Wastewater Transmission Improvements
- Little Creek Wastewater Pump Station
- East Clayton Industrial Area (ECIA) Pump Station and Force Main Improvements
- Capacity Expansion for the Clayton-to-Raleigh Pump Station
This facility, currently under construction, will be capable of treating six (6) million gallons of wastewater per day (MGD) of residential, commercial, and industrial flows. The facility is being built on a Town-owned site near the Neuse River at 1698 N O'Neil Street. The site is already home to other wastewater infrastructure. Thalle Construction Company is the general contractor; they have mobilized and started construction. Gannett Fleming is the Town's engineer of record.
Update - June 1, 2023
The transmission improvements, currently under construction, includes the installation of a new 24-inch force main from the existing Little Creek Water Reclamation Facility to the gravity discharge on Front St. The project includes bore and jacks under US-70, Front Street, and the NCRR railroad tracks. In addition, the project includes the installation of a new 24 to 48-inch gravity sewer from Front Street to the future influent pump station for the Sam's Branch WRF. JF Wilkerson is the general contractor. Withers & Ravenel is the Town's engineer of record.
This project component, currently under construction, includes a new pump station with a capacity of 13 MGD to divert flows from the existing Little Creek Water Reclamation Facility to the new Sam's Branch WRF. The new pump station will include submersible pumps, odor control, a standby generator, and a control building. Haren is the general contractor. Withers & Ravenel is the Town's engineer of record.
This ECIA project component, currently under final design and permitting, includes increasing the ECIA pump station capacity to 5 MGD and the installation of a new 20-inch force main to convey flow to the Sam's Branch WRF. A team of McKim & Creed - Withers & Ravenel is the Town's engineer of record.
This project component, currently under final design and permitting, includes expanding the Clayton-to-Raleigh pump station to convey a portion of the Town's raw wastewater flow to the City of Raleigh's Neuse River Resource Recovery Facility. This pump station is located directly adjacent to the Sam's Branch WRF site. The capacity expansion will allow the Town to fully utilize its contractual treatment capacity with the City of Raleigh and manage wastewater flows until the Sam's Branch WRF comes online. HDR is the Town's engineer of record.
