Grants Pass Water Treatment Project


Grants Pass Survey

Kiewit, together with GHD and Ausland Group, is currently pursuing to serve as prime contractor for the Grants Pass Water Treatment ProjectTo 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.  You can read more on the City’s website here  

About Kiewit

Kiewit is one of North America’s largest and most respected construction and engineering organizations. Kiewit’s roots can be traced back to 1884 when the Kiewit family started its small, local masonry contracting company in Nebraska. Kiewit has since grown to be one of the leading construction and engineering firms across North America; ranking 5th in ENR’s 2020 Top Contractors Rankings and building projects across North America.

We have been building projects in Oregon since 1958.  Kiewit and our affiliates have built over 135 projects in Oregon with an average value of about $36M. Our resume of projects includes major transportation projects in Portland; food process projects in Ontario, OR; railroad projects in Meacham, OR and a project in Grants Pass for the Central Oregon and Pacific Railroad.

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.  That is why it is important that we understand how we can involve local businesses and encourage you to take our brief survey below.
