Middlesex Water Authority Sewage Collection System

Middlesex County, VA

Bowman is assisting in developing a regional water system in lower Middlesex County. Bowman has completed this evaluation, developed and obtained the approval of the Preliminary Engineering Report and has begun design. The design will follow the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC) specifications. The project as scoped involves the installation of approximately 42 miles of water distribution piping sized from 12” down to 2”. It involves the design of storage tanks and booster pumping systems to support domestic and fire protection demands. Our PER included a number of hydraulic models runs to support the design of this distribution system. Also, through an evaluation of operating costs and financing costs from USDA-RD, Bowman developed a user rate schedule including connection fees and monthly rates to provide sustainable revenues to support the operation of the infrastructure. Bowman also assisted the Authority in applying for and obtaining $12M in low-interest financing for over $3 million in grants for the design and construction of this project.
