Making history by implementing the largest WTP in Kansas
The City of Wichita, Kansas is proceeding with a progressive design-build program to implement a new greenfield 120 MGD Northwest Water Facility (NWWF), which includes related large diameter conveyance pipelines and other offsite assets. Raw water to Wichita's new NWWF includes a blend of surface water, shallow alluvial groundwater, and aquifer storage and recovery supply. As the owner’s advisor, Garver resolves day-to-day conflicts and risk management associated with managing design and implementation of the largest water treatment facility in Kansas and the second largest WIFIA-funded program in the United States today.
Through Phase 1, Garver has identified significant changes to the water treatment process train that have reduced construction costs from over $600 million to $500 million, saving the City over $100 million to bring the project back to within budget. Garver continues to add value during Phase 2 final by providing design oversight, construction administration, residency, and startup assistance for the four-year, $500 million construction period.
