The largest brackish water desalination plant in North America has the capacity of 27.5 MGD to meet the needs of both Ft. Bliss and El Paso Water Utilities. With the constraints of a 22-month schedule from notice to proceed to substantial completion, Kiewit performed all structural concrete work, set all embed items for mechanical equipment and structural steel, installed pumps and piping, RO skids chemical systems and equipment, and performed start up and commissioning.
Due to the long history of rockslides and land slippage, Kiewit constructed tunnels to bypass the Devil's Slide portion of Route 1 so motorists can avoid these major slide areas. Using the New Austrian Tunneling Method, which relies on inherent rock strength for support, crews constructed the tunnels through granitic, sandstone and shale formations. The tunnels are approximately 4,100 feet long, 30 feet wide, 22 feet high and 60 feet apart.
