Civil Engineering


GarzaEMC performed improvements to and existing SAWS DSP Somerset Pumping Station and the demolition of off-site Clayton elevated storage tank and the related infrastructure. Each site is located in Somerset, Texas. The Somerset pumping station project consisted of a new 1.5 million-gallon (MG) ground storage tank (GST), pressure reducing valve (PRV) station, on-site tank overflow drainage system, new chlorine disinfection building and improvements, SCADA improvements, electrical upgrades, site security, public water dispenser, and yard piping that conveys flows to the DSP PZ 830. The proposed GST was designed to receive flows from the La Rosa PS and the Water Resources Integration Pipeline (WRIP). Site and facility improvements included demolition of a 300,000-gallon GST and metal building, site drainage, grading and lighting. The project was phased to allow the site to remain functional throughout the duration of construction. The Clayton Elevated Tank Facility consisted of the demolition of a 100,000-gallon elevated storage tank (EST) and structures (GST, buildings and slabs), removal of all below grade piping, plugging of four groundwater wells and site grading.
