Project 7 Water Authority Program

Providing more resilient service and increased energy recovery

The Project 7 Water Authority has hired Garver as its owner’s advisor (OA) to manage each program component, which includes two large project elements: a new treatment facility downstream of the Ridgway Reservoir and a new transmission pipeline tie-in to Project 7’s existing transmission system. The treatment plant is being phased to treat the high hardness water in alignment with customer quality and cost expectations. There will also be several smaller project components including energy recovery that support the community, timing, and budget goals of the Authority.

Garver is also supporting funding applications for various federal and state programs. These include grants through the United States Bureau of Reclamation, long-term and low-cost loans through the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) Program and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment’s (CDPHE) Interim Loan and Drinking Water Revolving Fund Programs, and other potential funding sources as the project continues to progress.
