Witchita Water ASR II (KS)

The City of Wichita’s ability to obtain adequate drinking water was threatened because their main source of water had become depleted and vulnerable to saltwater intrusion. To improve both the quantity and quality of available drinking water for the region, the City of Wichita’s Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) project draws water from the Little Arkansas River during high flows, treats the water to drinking water standards, and then injects the treated water into the aquifer for recovery and use during drought conditions.

North Lee County Water Treatment Plant Rehabilitation and Expansion

Using the progressive design-build delivery method provided $1.6 million in value engineering savings. Carollo’s design for the project reduced operating costs for Lee County Utilities by as much as $784,000 per year. This project was substantially completed on schedule and was awarded the 2012 Florida Section Design- Build Institute of America (DBIA) Award for water/wastewater projects.

Westerly Wastewater Treatment Plant Centrifuge Replacement (OH)

NEORSD’s decision to use progressive design-build (PDB) project delivery was based on the need to move more quickly, save money, and promote collaboration – resulting in a better approach than possible with traditional design-bid-build (DBB). PDB also gave NEORSD full insight into the cost of the work to be done throughout the project.

Edward W. Bailey Water Treatment Plant (CO)

McCarthy Building Companies and Carollo Engineers partnered on the Edward W. Bailey Water Treatment Plant and brought forth a unique approach to the project. The original project plan called for a campus style layout. The McCarthy/ Carollo team developed a plan that would consolidate the treatment structures and limit the plant’s exposure to the
poor soil conditions.

Mystic Water Pollution Control Facility (CT)

In recent years, the town of Stonington’s wastewater infrastructure had begun to show its age. Odor-control issues and adverse press reporting, as well as state regulations on nitrogen levels in effluent and the rate of commercial and community growth all placed strain on the town’s Mystic, Borough, and Pawcatuck water pollution control facilities. Since they were located near residential, commercial, and cultural sites, there was no available real estate to expand or build a new facility.
