Freese and Nichols is providing engineering and construction inspection services for the Mary Rhodes Phase 2 project. Freese and Nichols first evaluated delivery methods for the project and developed a pipeline route. Once the delivery method and alignment were determined, our team began preliminary design services for the project.
The project includes engineering a raw water delivery system to transfer 35,000 acre-feet per year of water from the Lower Colorado River to the existing Mary Rhodes Pipeline system, which will then transfer the Garwood water to the O.N. Stevens Water Treatment Plant. Proposed infrastructure includes 42 miles of raw water pipeline, an intake pump station, a booster pump station, a sedimentation basin and tie-in to the existing Mary Rhodes Pipeline system that includes a 6 MG tank.
Construction of the project is ongoing and expected completion is in September of 2015.
