The Colorado River Municipal Water District owns and operations three water supply reservoirs in West Texas. Facing a severe water shortage, the CRMWD was forced to build an emergency ground water supply for Odessa, Midland, Big Spring, and Snyder. The $130 million Ward County Water Supply Project was designed and constructed in eighteen months. * This presentation summarizes the challenges and lessons learned for the design, permitting, and construction of the new 30 million gallon per day water supply system that includes 21 groundwater wells, 65 miles of pipeline, four pump stations, and other related facilities. In particular, the presentation will cover the following: * Measures taken to expedite the project * Alternate delivery methods to expedite construction, manage risk, and increase quality * Permitting challenges * Pipeline construction using on-site mixed controlled low strength material (CLSM) * Use of new technology tools for design, construction, and managing the project * Drilling, producing, and equipping 21 wells in the record time. *** The Project was on-time, under budget, and met CRMWD’s goals for high quality and performance, and was one of five projects nominated for the National ASCE Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award.
