Gosling Czubak completed the reconstruction design of an existing 97.8 million gallon (MG) per year wastewater lagoon facility in Markey Township for the Houghton Lake Sewer Authority. With the facility experiencing significant leakage from their existing lagoons and increased levels of nitrogen in the groundwater, the Houghton Lake Sewer Authority (HLSA) decided to repair the lining system. The project included a new double composite liner for the lagoon system that consisted of two 17 MG aeration lagoons, one 14.5 MG storage lagoon and two 21 MG storage lagoons. The project also included new gates and replacement of the aging aeration and irrigation systems. The facility is now equipped with high efficiency, low decibel blowers and an irrigation system with new pumps and a center pivot, covering 65 acres. 

Gosling Czubak assisted HLSA in obtaining loans from the State Revolving Fund. The project was completed below the $6.97M budget, allowing the purchase of a new sewer vacuum truck with the funding balance.
