City of Poway Selects Butier for Clearwell Replacement Project

The City of Poway recently selected Butier Engineering Inc. to provide construction management and inspection services for the Clearwell Replacement project. The $30 million-$35 million project will increase the reliability of drinking water for customers by bypassing, then replacing the aging 10 MG Clearwell. Butier will serve as an extension of the City’s staff, assisting in the delivery of the following scope of work: construction of two identical 4 MG aboveground circular prestressed concrete tanks, piping, associated appurtenances, site grading, access road, electrical power, instrumentation, demolition/removal of existing facilities, site security, restoration of the ball field, and coordination with the City for closures and shutdowns.

The Clearwell Replacement Project is critical to the City of Poway’s Water Infrastructure Program and is the largest CIP in the City’s 40-year history. Butier is eager to assist the City throughout the process and deliver the project successfully.  The construction schedule is estimated to be June 2023–June 2025.

Butier is pleased to be working with the City of Poway, Kennedy Jenks (program manager), Ardurra (design engineer), Helix Environmental Planning (environmental), Ninyo & Moore (materials testing and geotechnical), Earth Construction and Mining (earthwork and rock excavation), and ON-SITE Technical Services (testing and startup).
