Water Treatment System Improvements
The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park rebuilt its water treatment and finished water storage infrastructure. Project elements included adding redundancy to the intake pumping system, a 50-gpm conventional water treatment system housed inside a new 1,280-ft vertical structure, and a 120,000-gallon glass-fused-steel finished water storage tank. The existing site was already substantially developed; construction occurred in close proximity to existing infrastructure. Design of new elements began in August, 2017 and were completed in June, 2018.
JDS-Hydro was onsite for system start-up and continues to be a resource for operators in managing data and water usage at the Park. Closing books included a hard copy and electronic copy all construction documents, including submittals and as-built drawings.
Budget: $1.4 Million
