During the Preliminary Engineering Phase, Freese and Nichols studied the Chisholm Creek system parameters to recommend replacement equipment and piping, as well as a new electrical building and new odor control system with the goal of minimizing power costs. During this phase, the project team also studied the Spring Creek system parameters to optimize the use of the existing holding pond while minimizing the size of the proposed lift station and proposed force main. The goals for the Spring Creek system were to reduce initial capital costs, reduce operating costs and maximize the ease of operation to keep the force main clean.
The engineering, environmental and social impacts were studied for multiple force main routes in order to determine the recommended route, which required coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
During design, Freese and Nichols worked with a right-of-way agent and other subcontractors to obtain survey, easements, geotechnical and geothermal information that was used by the full-service project team to develop the construction plans, specifications, and opinions of probable construction costs. Freese and Nichols will also provide bid and construction phase services.
