WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 8, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The City will be expanding the wastewater treatment capacity of its Ocotillo Water Reclamation Facility (OWRF) and is holding an open house to explain the project.
The OWRF Open House will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 30, at the Ocotillo Golf Resort, 3751 S. Clubhouse Drive, Chandler.
The City is designing improvements to expand the treatment capacity of the facility from 10 million gallons per day (mgd) to 15 mgd to meet increasing demands while supporting the future growth potential in the Ocotillo and Price Road Corridor area. Construction is scheduled to begin this fall.
Built in 1985 as one of the first large-scale water reclamation facilities in Arizona, the OWRF produces Class A-plus effluent, the highest grade of reclaimed water. This reclaimed water is delivered through underground pipes to areas of the City where it’s used for golf courses, lakes, landscape irrigation, and industrial purposes.
Carollo Engineers, Inc. and Wilson Engineers, LLC are designing the improvements and a joint venture of Sundt Construction, Inc. and McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. will build the $120 million project.
A Community Advisory Panel consisting of design staff, residents, nearby business owners, City staff and other stakeholders has been meeting since last summer to provide input on the project, including building features and landscaping.
