Beaver Water District’s Raw Water Intake Project was completed and placed in service in the fall of 2005. The Raw Water Intake Project was designed in association with MWH, Inc. of Sacramento, California.
The project included design and construction of two vertical shafts, each 30 feet in diameter and 95 feet deep, eight 60-inch microtunnelled pipelines into Beaver Lake, and a 140-MGD raw water pump station. The facility design also includes specifications for surge protection.
In May 2006, McGoodwin, Williams and Yates along with MWH received the National Award for Excellence in Engineering for this project from the American Council of Engineering Companies during the council’s annual convention in Washington, D.C. for Raw Water Intake.
