This project entailed performing an engineering evaluation to determine the best option for providing an additional water source to the Village of Warwick. Options evaluated for the backup source included Well #3 or the development of another new well. Well #3 has an average yield capacity of 250 GPM and can yield up to 400,000 GPD. Well #3 was known to be GWUDI and needed either treatment or pumping to the microfiltration plant before use as a primary source.
Additional options included the development of alternate wells, construction of an entirely new treatment plant, and construction of a water main connecting the new well with the existing treatment plant. KC performed a preliminary investigation and presented a recommendation to the Village. KC also prepared a prelimary design concept, capital and life cycle cost analysis, and an engineer’s report for the preferred option.
