Funding for a 50-year sustainable water supply
Garver is serving as owner’s representative (OR), program manager, and lead designer for a multi-phased, full build-out of a $475 million program to deliver raw water from the Kaw Lake Reservoir (Arkansas River Watershed) to the City of Enid, Oklahoma. The program provides the City with a new 50-year sustainable water supply to supplement its existing groundwater supply. The program involves a new intake structure in the Kaw Reservoir, 70 miles of 36-inch raw water pipelines with booster pump stations, an initial design of 10.5 MGD and a 21 MGD full build-out advanced water treatment plant (WTP), terminal storage reservoir, and an optimized delivery system for proper blending with local groundwater.
Design is focused on achieving compliance with Safe Drinking Water Act standards and regulations with a multi-barrier approach. The team also coordinated with regulatory and funding agencies as well as stakeholders and prepared a successful Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) Letter of Interest for supplemental program funding and organized public meetings.
