The City of Van Buren, MO selected Horner & Shifrin to assist with the submittal for the first-ever Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) Regionalization Grant. H&S had previously written a Facility Plan for the Deer Run Reorganized Sewer District that included connection to Van Buren for wastewater treatment. The report reviewed the existing Deer Run wastewater collection system and was submitted to the MoDNR Regionalization Grant for construction funding. Infiltration and inflow was investigated through video inspection and smoke testing of the collection lines and visual inspection of the manholes and lift stations. Preliminary reporting was completed in late 2019.
The Regionalization project was approved in early 2020 for a $1.1 Million Dollar MoDNR SRF-Regionalization Grant to resolve a 10+ year non-compliance issue that the District has had with their unpermitted lagoon. Design began in mid-2020. Construction is currently underway and is expected to be complete in mid-2022.
