Pascal & Ludwig

Butier Engineering, Inc. provided construction management, contract administration, inspection, and quality control services for the eight extraction wells. The scope of work for each project location included the following: housing structures for pumps, motors, and piping; site improvements, including paving, drainage, fencing, and landscaping; installation of deep well turbine pump and motors; electrical and instrumentation; disinfection facilities; discharge piping and valving; off-site piping and valving; and startup, testing, and training.

The project required the involvement of seven water agency municipalities and their associated City Building and Public Works Departments. In addition, the project included close coordination with various public utilities and the Department of Health Services. Weekly construction progress meetings provided an opportunity for the Contractor, Water Agency, or Owner to coordinate and provide assistance to each other to formulate formal shutdown and tie-in plans that otherwise could not have been attained in the contract duration.
