» 33 Valves
CFS Engineers was responsible for Project Management, Utility Coordination, Water Line Easement/Right of Way document preparation and coordination, Water Line Design and Plan Preparation, and Project Cost Estimation.
Spirit of 76 Watermain Project
CFS prepared plans for a proposed 12-inch water line on the north and south side of Route 76 for 5 miles west of Highway 65 (west of downtown Branson). The project replaces the existing 8-inch water line along the north side of Route 76. Construction documents were completed for phase 1 of the project with construction completed in Spring of 2017.
CFS was responsible for all aspects of project coordination, including survey, utility coordination, easement and right-of-way document preparation and coordination, water line design and plan preparation and project cost estimation.
Additional Waterline Projects
» 14th Street | Winchester Road to Maple Street Eudora, Kansas
This project included included 4,000 LF of new 12” waterline installed from the water tower at 14th & Maple to the west to improve pressure and flow to the west side of the City. Design included installation of bends, crosses, tees, valves, reducers, anchor couplings, fire hydrants, connects to the surrounding system as well as development of easement documents, staking and inspection of the installation.
» Kasold Drive Waterline Improvements Lawrence, Kansas
This project included the complete reconstruction of over a mile long major arterial from 6th Street to Bob Billings Parkway surrounded by established residential and commercial areas. In addition to roadway design, waterline plans included full 12” main replacement and relocation of the existing waterline through the fully developed area. Design included replacement of all existing services along the alignment, installation of bends, tees, valves, reducers, anchor couplings, fire hydrants, caps/plugs, backflow preventer & vault, reconnection of existing fire hydrants, and installation of waterline by directional drilling.
» Wanamaker Road | 4th to 10th Street Topeka, Kansas
This project included construction of 1,700 LF of 12” PVC water main along Wanamaker Road from SW 4th Street to SW 10th Street. This project included complete street pavement replacement and storm sewer replacement. Hydrants, temporary hydrants, meters, valves, and all other appurtenances were included in bid estimates for accurate project budget planning. A localized high spot was unavoidable in the design due to existing tie-in points and cover requirements, thus a 1” Air-Release Valve and enclosure was included at this location.
