This project will involve the construction of at least one pumping station and force main to transfer flows from east Mecklenburg county to a wastewater treatment plant within the Catawba River Basin. Gravity sewer improvements may be necessary to the receiving sewer. CLTWater is proposing installation of a new Clarke Creek Pumping Station and Force Main which would involve constructing a new pumping station close to the Mecklenburg-Cabarrus County Line, in order to divert the entire Clarke Creek Basin flows to the McDowell Creek WWTP.
Progressive Design Build (PDB) is the recommended delivery model for this project. Due to critical project schedule and potential for complex multicriteria alternatives and risk analysis, Owner’s Advisor (OA) services will be needed. In addition to decision analysis support, the selected OA scope will include scheduling and budgeting support for all phases of the project as it progresses, including monitoring design development for compliance with contract cost and schedule.
