City of El Mirage 121st Ave Wastewater Treatment Plant

This project is a heavy equipment wash rack drainage system designed to remove dirt, grease, and oil from the wash water prior to it entering the water treatment plant. Team Fishel and FiberForce paired up to value engineer this heavy equipment wash rack slab which would have gone with traditional rebar reinforcement. Instead, Team Fishel and the City of El Mirage poured 5.5 lb/yd³ of FiberForce 750 macro fiber to help with crack control as well as impact and abrasion resistance in the slab.
