Scope of Work
Design improvements to enhance the coastal community’s water supply, including expansion of the spring collection network, installation of surface water treatment facilities, and increase of storage capacity.
- Spatial limitations as treatment improvements and upgrades were restricted to the original facility footprint, plus storage expansion accomplished in limited site acquisition.
- Financial constraints. USDA Rural Development funding (grant and low interest loan) supported the community outreach, environmental documentation, design, and construction management activities.
Solutions and Successes
- Treatment building design included input from community members, resulting in a facility that blends into the existing residential neighborhood.
- Expanded spring water collection system eliminated necessity to augment supplies using the old well during high demand periods allowing the local community access to safe, high quality water year-round.
