Volta Wasteway Project

Reclamation's goal for this pilot project is to develop a groundwater supply in the Volta Wildlife Management Area (WMA) that can be used to diversify water supply sources, improve water supply reliability for Central Valley Project (CVP) contractors, Volta WMA, and other nearby WMA's.

FCE has researched and reviewed existing documentation to incorporate into the project plan and design for the needed facilities. The team has prepared technical memorandum for the project plan and has also completed a project monitoring plan for the three-year demonstration project.

FCE has evaluated the well production and hydrogeologic impacts for design and installation of two large capacity wells. FCE managed and assisted in the preparation of technical reports, plans, specifications, and well surface facility design. In addition, FCE participated in a Value Engineering Study on the project and coordinated the design efforts of subconsultants. Finally, FCE is managing the preparation of annual reports during the three year pilot study.
