Pape-Dawson provided planning, permitting, design, and construction phase services to improve existing infrastructure for the booming Sonterra Municipal Utility District (MUD) in north Austin. We created a water model of the existing water system to understand deficiencies and evaluate needs and performed a preliminary engineering report to assist the MUD in prioritizing improvements and allocating funding. We also designed phased improvements to increase storage capacity and water quality, including a 0.6 MGD elevated water storage tank, two wells for potable water consumption, and an 8″ water line to connect the improvements to distribution.
Highlighted Water Supply Infrastructure Design Projects
Anderson Pump Station
Pape-Dawson completed the design and secured approvals on an expedited schedule for this 13,000-gallons-per-minute high-service booster pump station that serves an estimated 8,700 customers in western Bexar County.
Ventana Pump Station
Pape-Dawson provided design and construction oversight services for the construction of a 375,000-gallon ground storage tank, pump system, and water lines.
Vista Ridge Regional Water Supply Project
At 142 miles, the length of this mammoth water supply project is akin to the distance between Austin and East Houston – or one-fifth the length of Texas – and is the largest design-build pipeline project in Texas history.
WECO Pump Station
Pape-Dawson designed a new water production facility to provide up to 15 MGD of potable water from the Trinity Aquifer to San Antonio Water System.
