Keeping Pace with the Las Vegas Strip: Design and Construction of Large Diameter Interceptors
Abstract:The Clark County Water Reclamation District (District), as a leading utility agency is committed to treating, disinfecting and reclaiming the wastewater received daily at their facilities and safely returning it to the environment. In 2006 while rehabilitating existing interceptors it was determined that, major influent interceptors to the Central Plant Wastewater Treatment Facility (Central Plant) were at risk of being surcharged and under capacity for future growth. The District acted immediately in coordination of efforts to plan, design, and construct new influent interceptors as well as associated odor control facilities. Within four months, construction was underway on a critical collection system component. The focus of this paper is a review of planning, design, and construction elements necessary to enable an accelerated project schedule, resulting in the vital wastewater infrastructure serving the community and the Las Vegas Strip.
