Uintalands Association is a cabin community located in the Uinta Mountains. The high elevations and a transient population provide unique challenges to its water system; offering a culinary water system to the association is a unique benefit to its residents.
Franson Civil Engineers prepared a Culinary Water Master Plan to evaluate the existing water system and provide recommendations for the community’s future needs. Work involved a comprehensive inventory of the existing facilities, hydraulic model development, and alternatives development with cost estimates for future build-out. We provided standard plans and specifications for use by Uintalands to help maintain a quality, consistent water system.
Funding was obtained from the Utah Division of Drinking Water (DDW) for the master plan and for the construction of a new 230,000-gallon concrete water tank, replacement of approximately 4,000 feet of pipeline, installation of meters for leak detection, and pressure-reducing valves. These projects were designed with drawings and specifications approved by DDW. Franson Civil Engineers provided construction management services for these projects.
