COOKEVILLE –Coming off the heels of being named a Top 200 Environmental Contractor by Engineering News-Record, Cookeville-based J. Cumby Construction has been selected to build a raw water intake and pump station in Mississippi.
Cumby Construction’s heavy civil division will build a raw water intake and pump station to supply water to the treatment plant for the Northwest Mississippi Regional Water Supply District in Tupelo, Miss. Eight pumps will supply 18.5-19 million gallons of water per day for the plant. Due to the soft soil at the construction site, the main structure will be supported by pilings. The intake, which is submerged in the Tennessee-Tombigee Water Canal, will require steel piling for protection and will be installed using divers working from barges in the waterway.
“Our team has built a strong reputation for quality construction that is delivered on budget and within the expected timeframe,” said Justin Cumby, president of J. Cumby Construction. “That’s a direct result of the high quality of people we have. Combining experience, knowledge and a commitment to service, our team has developed into an award-winning builder that makes client satisfaction priority number one.”
The pump station project is expected to be completed in 2020 at a cost of $16.9 million. It also includes forward-thinking planning, with space for four future pumps.
