Grants Pass Water Treatment Project
GRANTS PASS WATER TREATMENT PROJECT
KIEWIT – GHD – AUSLAND GROUP
Kiewit, together with GHD and Ausland Group, is currently pursuing to serve as prime contractor for the Grants Pass Water Treatment Project. To make this important infrastructure project a success we need the help of local businesses and workers, we can’t do it without you! If you are interested in an opportunity to be part of this project and join our team, please take a minute to fill out this survey and tell us a little more about your business or your work skills.
The project consists of the design and construction of a new 22 million gallon per day water treatment plant and includes room for future expansion. The existing water treatment facility has been identified as one of the oldest existing water plants still in operation in the state of Oregon. Well past its projected lifecycle, the ability of the plant to reliably deliver water to the community is becoming increasingly more challenging and expensive. Your new water treatment plant will be based on robust and proven treatment technology. The new plant will use the existing intake at the existing plant to reduce cost. When completed, this project will provide the residents of Grants Pass a new and reliable source of clean, high-quality drinking water for many years to come. Plant design activities will begin in 2021 and are anticipated to last for about a year. Construction will begin early in 2023.

It is important that we are good stewards of the public dollars that fund the projects we build. Our approach to stewardship is founded on transparency. We make regular use of dashboards, tailored to the unique needs of each project, client and community to maintain transparency on project cost and progress.
We embrace our obligation to be responsible guests in the communities we work in and maintain the highest regard for them. After all, we build in our own backyards as much as we do in yours. We can’t build your projects alone, it takes an entire team of companies to build any project.

Kiewit – Waterman Water Treatment Plant
Waterman Water Treatment Plant Project was to increase its capacity from 15 million gallons per day to 30 million gallons per day. The project scope involved adding ozone process capacity as well as new clarification process equipment. In an effort to modernize the plant, many of its existing facilities were completely or partially upgraded.
Kiewit – Raw Water Facilities
Willamette Water Supply Program, the Raw Water Facilities project is to increase the pumping capacity to 60 mgd of the pump station, seismically reinforce the Willamette River bank, increase the intake capacity through new fish screens, build a new electrical building and standby power, and build a new pipeline.
Kiewit – Columbia Blvd CM/GC
The project consists of secondary treatment expansion with the addition of two 150-feet diameter secondary clarifiers, which will require other facilities to be demolished and replaced.
