This morning, the Associated General Contractors of America honored PC with a Construction Risk Partners Build America Award for our work on the extensive Richland Creek Water Supply Program project. PC’s $93 million portion of the Richland Creek Water Supply Program, which began in 2016 and completed in 2020, eliminates Paulding County’s dependence on outside water sources, and is designed to meet the water needs of its 168,000 residents for the next 40 years.
This construction management at-risk project featured the addition of a new Etowah River pump station with four 16-mgd, 1500-HP vertical turbine pumps, as well as a reservoir pump station with three 9-mgd, 400-HP vertical turbine pumps. All pump stations can be controlled remotely from the overall system operation center, located at the new 18-mgd water treatment plant.
The Richland Creek Reservoir will provide approximately three billion gallons of raw water storage. The reservoir is designed to yield 35 mgd, which will support the future needs of Paulding County as population and industry continue to grow.
The Build America awards honor AGC members who build the nation’s most impressive construction projects ranging across the building, highway and transportation, utility infrastructure, and federal and heavy divisions. Honorees excel in the areas of state-of-the-art advancement, innovation, safety, client service and environmental sensitivity.
