Program and construction management
Since 1993, Parsons has provided program and construction management services to the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA)—the agency responsible for addressing Southern Nevada’s water needs—on its major capital program. Our very first assignment was to develop a phased plan so new facilities would come into service just before they were needed. Key features of the capital improvement program include:
To manage the requirements of such a large and changing program, we developed a unique project control system that linked to the overall project schedule to track spending on every contract. This system also provided transparency for SNWA to monitor how its ratepayers’ money was spent as construction proceeds. Our other innovations and accomplishments on this program include:
We recently provided planning, project development, design management, and construction management for SNWA’s new Intake No. 3—a deep water intake that will provide continued access to water from Lake Mead as a historic drought and declining lake levels threaten the operation of the other two intakes.
We currently provide program and construction management services for the Intake No. 3 Low Lake Level Pumping Station (L3PS), which will deliver water from the recently completed intake to SNWA’s two water treatment facilities. The project includes the new pumping station, 144 inch-diameter aqueducts to connect to existing facilities, and 69-kv electrical service to the pumping station. L3PS will have a total pumping capacity of 900 million gallons per day.
As SNWA continues to provide comprehensive water management for the Southern Nevada region, we provide a wide range of water resource engineering and construction services to support their success and to meet the region’s ever-growing water needs.
