Denver Water Lease Improvements

 
This project involved the planning and design of facilities to allow the South Adams County Water and Sanitation District to obtain delivery of leased water from Denver Water at the north side of Denver International Airport. This project eliminates several major dead-end water distribution lines in SACWSD, and assists Denver Water in keeping water fresh in the DIA system. The project included approximately three miles of 16-inch PVC water line, with associated metering, flow control, and pressure reducing facilities. The project also included modifications to an existing connection between Denver Water and SACWSD on Tower Road, to allow greater deliveries. Extensive right-of-way identification and acquisition was required. The project required a chlorine monitoring and feed system to provide break-point chlorination of chloraminated Denver Water so that it could be co-mingled in the distribution system with chlorinated water. The project involved close coordination with Denver Water, the East Cherry Creek Valley Water and Sanitation District, and Denver International Airport.

Landmark Irrigation Pump Station & Reservoir

 Landmark Pump Station Landmark Pump Station

 

The Landmark Irrigation Pump Station and Reservoir is a facility that supplies non-potable irrigation water through the District’s dual water supply system to the residential and commercial customers in the newly constructed communities in the District’s North Range service area. The station is located on the east side of Landmark Drive at 102nd Place, Commerce City, Colorado.

Muller Engineering Company provided preliminary design, final design, bid and construction phase engineering services for this $8 million project that consisted of a booster pump station to deliver an ultimate capacity of 33 MGD, and a 4 MG buried concrete reservoir facility. In the future, the reservoir is planned to be expanded to ultimately store 16 MG of water. The pumping station was designed with a 20-foot below ground pump room for 10 horizontal split case booster pumps, suction and discharge piping, on-site sodium hypochlorite generation system, new SCADA control system room, electrical room, mechanical room, bathroom, garage area, and overhead bridge crane. The project also included the design and construction of the on-site transmission lines, drainage facilities, site grading and extensive landscaping to correspond with the neighborhood landscape already developed in the community. The irregular contouring of the ground around the reservoir with mounds was designed and constructed to provide a natural appearance.

Fulton Ditch Improvements

 

These projects involved the planning, design, and construction phase engineering services for improvements to the existing ditch to increase its capacity from 230 cfs to 530 cfs, to enable Thornton and Denver Water to carry water to gravel pit reservoirs, as well as to allow the South Adams County Water and Sanitation District to deliver augmentation flows to the South Platte River. The improvements of the combined projects included demolition and construction of a new headgate structure at the South Platte River that encompasses five sluice gates with all appurtenances including electrical and controls. An automatic control system was designed to allow both remote and central control of the headgates. Other improvements include approximately 7,300 lf of reinforced concrete canal lining, a concrete long throated measuring flume and gauging station, two reinforced concrete augmentation structures with slide gates, two reinforced concrete augmentation structures with 15-foot radial gates that in the future will divert water into reservoirs owned by Denver Water and Thornton, and a 40-foot precast concrete bridge.
