Water & Sewer Capital Improvements Plan

Water Resources
Gautier, MS

Waggoner was hired to develop a Water and Sewer Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) to evaluate the condition of the city’s current water and wastewater infrastructure and make recommendations for improvements.

Additionally, the project involves Program Management and Administration services to assist with the implementation of local priorities. One of the city’s main goals was to identify a solution to remove the natural color that exists in the drinking water.

50 units

of color removed from the city’s water supply

The Details

The plan evaluates the capacity and condition and makes recommendations for water infrastructure, including wells, tanks, water lines, and treatment. A hydraulic model of the city’s water distribution system was developed to determine the existing capacity and project future system demands based on growth patterns.

Waggoner piloted a Nanofiltration Color Removal plant using a raw water feed from the city’s water supply. The pilot was successful in removing color from 50 units down to 0 units. Further evaluations are ongoing to determine the capital and O&M costs for full-scale implementation.

The plan also evaluates the capacity and condition and makes recommendations for wastewater infrastructure, including pump stations, collection system, treatment, and stormwater inflow & infiltration.

Waggoner is also providing Program Management and Administration support services to assist the City in implementing its infrastructure priorities through various funding strategies.
