The Regional Carrizo Program (RCP), when completed, will transfer water from the Carrizo Aquifer to serve the City of San Antonio. A key component of the RCP program is the Water Delivery Pipeline designed by Freese and Nichols. The 36-inch potable water transmission pipeline travels 11.5 miles from the City of Schertz to the City of San Antonio through urban areas of Guadalupe, Comal and Bexar Counties, at a construction cost of $19 million. The project included extensive coordination with utility companies and land owners and major crossings of I-35, Loop 1604, Union Pacific Railroad and Cibolo Creek. Scope of services included: route selection, pipeline design and construction phase services. The project was fast-tracked for a 10-month design, which required expediting design and land acquisition. Aerial topographic survey was used to shorten the typical ground survey completion timeline, in order to meet the aggressive schedule.
