The Carroll-Boone Regional Water System was a $22 million project conceived and designed by MWY that commenced in the mid-1970s and was completed in the early 1980s.
The project consisted of a raw water intake structure and treatment plant near Beaver Dam and a 55 mile long treated water line (30-inch and 24-inch) constructed through rough Ozark Mountain terrain from the water treatment plant site near Beaver Dam to Harrison, Arkansas.
These facilities now provide treated water to the cities of Eureka Springs, Green Forest, Berryville and Harrison. A radio telemetry system monitors data in each of the four distribution systems and the district’s facilities in order that all cities can be delivered an adequate amount of water to meet their demand.
The most recent project completed was the second 5-million gallon Pine Mountain ground storage tank. The project consisted of a new 5MG ground storage tank and associated 24-inch site piping improvements. The project was completed in late 2005 with an approximate construction cost of $1.35 million.
