Advanced Oxidation Process Treatment Plant
Status: CompletedUpdated: May 12, 2015
As directed by the Mayor & Council, Tucson Water is constructing a 1,4-dioxane treatment system. This system will allow Tucson Water to serve water from the TARP superfund treatment facility that meets the U.S. EPA Drinking Water Health Advisory level for 1,4-dioxane without having to blend the water with other groundwater sources. This treatment facility will meet the drinking water regulations and will protect Water customer health. There are two Guaranteed Maximum Price contracts (GMP). GMP1 is $4.3M, which includes chemical feed equipment and GMP2 is $10.3M and includes site work, building, piping, etc.

Chloramination Disinfection Facility at the Tucson Water Reclaimed Plant
Status: CompletedUpdated: May 12, 2015
This project is the construction of nitrogen (ammonia) feed system for the reclaimed water system. The new Pima County Waste Treatment Plant provides secondary effluent nearly void of nitrogen (2 ppm). The old Roger Road Treatment Plant provided secondary effluent with high nitrogen levels (around 29 ppm). The Roger Road Treatment Plant is in the process of being closed. Chloramination (water treatment) has been ongoing at the Tucson Water Reclaimed Plant from the start. With any level of nitrogen chloramination is the best means of water treatment (consultant study) to insure safe water for irrigation and other uses. The nitrogen level of 2 ppm is too low for proper chloramination so a nitrogen source (ammonia) must be installed. This project will provide the equipment, building, piping, and controls to provide that ammonia.

Southern Avra Valley Reservoir and Booster Station
Status: CompletedUpdated: May 18, 2015
Construct an 8.5 million gallon potable water concrete lined reservoir along with a booster station having the ability to pump an additional 27.9 million gallons of water per day from the Southern Avra Valley Storage and Recovery Project (SAVSARP). This reservoir and booster station is a required component of Tucson Water’s SAVSARP. The construction of this reservoir and booster station is required in order for the citizens of the City of Tucson to realize the benefit of the recharge effort in Southern Avra Valley. Utilization of SAVSARP increases the City’s use of a renewable water supply and decreases the City’s dependence on groundwater.
