A $52M WWTP Overhaul
Norman Utilities Authority (NUA) tasked Garver with the $52 million overhaul, which turned its wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) into a 17 MGD Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) to better serve the citizens of Norman, Oklahoma. The project involved rehabilitation, repurposing, and new construction on major aspects of the plant. It represented the largest capital improvement project in Norman’s history and the largest Oklahoma Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan at the time of award. Garver’s efforts garnered citizen buy-in for sewer rate increases to repay the loan. Quality design documents and effective constructive management helped the owner preserve budget and incorporate additional improvements. It was constructed $1.5 million under budget.
