Using Design-Build for Immediate and Long-Term Relief from Ongoing, Chronic Grit Removal
RM Clayton WRC Headworks Improvements – Atlanta, GA
Located in the city of Atlanta, GA, the RM Clayton Water Reclamation Control (WRC) facility treats an average daily flow of 122 MGD with peak flows exceeding 240 MGD. The headworks facility currently collects and treats flow from an aging, combined sewer system that routinely contains large quantities of grit that are difficult to remove.
This 2018 DBIA National Excellence Award winner by Western Summit (Kiewit) and Brown and Caldwell provides a clear illustration of the benefits of collaborative delivery.
