PHOENIX, Ariz. -- HYA, a subsidiary of the global professional services company Dames & Moore, has been selected by the city of Phoenix to serve as program manager of the Cave Creek Road Facilities project, which will provide for the first use of reclaimed water in northern Phoenix.
This program includes the design and construction of pumping and transmission facilities to deliver treated surface water from the Union Hills Water Treatment Plant north to the Tatum Ranch area. In addition, reclaimed water pumping and transmission facilities will be designed and constructed. These facilities will convey reclaimed water from the Cave Creek Water Reclamation Plant, currently under design, north to the Tatum Ranch area and southeast to 64th Street and the Central Arizona Project Canal.
Currently, northern Phoenix's water needs are being substantially met with groundwater. The new facilities will enable treated surface water to be used for domestic purposes, while the reclaimed water is used for golf course and landscape irrigation, and to help conserve groundwater supplies.
HYA is managing eight design teams chosen to work on the project. The company will perform aerial photography and surveying, coordinate the scheduling and completion of the facilities' design, review design plans, and coordinate construction bids and selections. The project is expected to be completed by December 1998.
