Serving Nashville since 1929, Omohundro is the city’s oldest operational water treatment plant. This plant serves over half of Davidson Co., so service interruption was not an option. The water intake of stone and brick, which sets in the middle of the Cumberland River, was 100% cut out and tuckpointed. The intake base is 30 ft. below the water surface and tops out some 60 ft. above the water. The smoke stack was cut out and tuckpointed 100% at over 120 ft. tall. There were two building on site requiring cut out and tuckpointing. The Pump House and Admin Building were 100% restored, and the Pump House entry’s stone headers were rebuilt to their original condition through stone patching methods.
