Having concerns for the long-term viability of their water supply, the City of Enid has taken the bold step of considering alternative water supply options. After completing a study of options, the City hired the Garver/Freese and Nichols team to provide program management services for the development of an alternative water supply from Kaw Lake. The project will include an intake pump station, intermediate pump station, 50 miles of raw water pipeline, water treatment plant and terminal water storage reservoir, and distribution system integration. The program management services have been divided into two phases and the City has authorized the team to begin on the initial phase which includes:
Establishing project controls
Preliminary environmental studies
Alignment and material analysis
Funding and review coordination
Freese and Nichols will provide conceptual design services for the raw water pipeline including evaluation of three 1/4-mile-wide raw water pipeline corridors and recommend a final corridor for Owner selection.
