To ensure reliable water supply to the northwest communities of Oakland County, Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) had proposed to construct a new water pumping station with a firm capacity of 70 MGD, and a 10 MGD reservoir under Design- Build project delivery system.
METCO was retained by GLWA as their ‘Oversight Consultant’ to prepare proposal documents for Design/Build and to provide Owner ‘Oversight’ Consulting Services during the Bidding, Design and Construction phases of this project.
The key features of this project include:
The design process of the project required coordination with multiple permitting agencies. In addition, community outreach was another critical element during the construction such that the communities were informed of potential interruption of the water supply to their citizens and the required steps to be initiated to satisfy public health mandates.
