Woodland-Davis DBO water project breaks ground

April 30, 2014

DENVER — CH2M HILL is in charge of design, construction and long-term operation of the facility.

DENVER — The Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency (WDCWA) hosted a groundbreaking event on April 10 to observe the start of construction on the new regional surface water treatment plant, expected to open in fall 2016, according to a press release.

The project will replace deteriorating groundwater supplies with safe, more reliable surface water supplies from the Sacramento River, the release reported.

WDCWA awarded CH2M HILL, a global full service consulting, design, construction and operations firm, a $141 million contract for the design, construction and long-term operation of the facility in October 2013, noted the release.

The Design-Build-Operate (DBO) project will optimize construction and operation costs for the Cities of Woodland and Davis and when complete, divert approximately 45,000 acre-feet of water per year from the Sacramento River, continued the release, in addition to supplying 30 million gallons of water per day to water customers in Woodland and Davis and potentially UC Davis, with future expansion capabilities to 34 mgd.

“We are excited to work with the WDCWA on the surface water treatment facility. A lot of hard work and many years have gone into its planning,” said CH2M HILL’s DBO Director Rich Pyle. “The groundbreaking event marks an important milestone for Woodland and Davis. We look forward to a close partnership with WDCWA and the cities for many years to come.”
