San Bernardino Valley MWD Awards Design, Engineering & CM Contract to Butier/Tetra Tech Team
Butier Engineering—in partnership with Tetra Tech—was selected by the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District (SBVMWD) to provide design, engineering, and construction management services for the Santa Ana River Enhanced Recharge (SARER) Phase 1B Channel and Recharge Basins Project. SBVMWD is working in cooperation with the San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation District, Western Municipal Water District, and the Riverside Public Utilities. The proposed facilities are intended to allow 500 cfs of water released from the Seven Oaks Dam to be diverted through existing and new facilities for recharge in the Santa Ana River Recharge Basins. Construction for Phase 1B is expected to begin in summer 2019, pending completion of the Wash Plan Habitat Conservation Plan.
