Nestled in “America’s Salad Bowl,” the City of Gonzales grappled with wastewater compliance challenges related to commercial and industrial land uses. To address this and accommodate industrial expansion, Dudek partnered with major local food processors and the City, providing engineering evaluation and design for an enhanced wastewater collection and treatment system.
When the Coachella Valley Water District constructed a new headworks at Water Reclamation Plant No. 7 (WRP 7), it was critical to remedy the lack of redundancy and diminishing reliability of the two-decades-old plant sludge thickening and dewatering system. Dudek provided professional engineering services to support the replacement of wastewater solids handling facilities at the
Dudek was contracted by the Chino Basin Desalter Authority (CDA) to design approximately 1,500 lineal feet of their Product Water Pipeline. The project comprised a new 30-inch-diameter cement-mortar lined and coated (CML&C) welded steel water pipeline and 36-inch DR9 high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipeline and appurtenances, including a 1,000-lineal-feet horizontal directional drilling (HDD) crossing beneath the
Dudek is supporting the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) in creating and distributing K-12 educational materials on water literacy and conservation for all 10 of California’s hydrologic regions. As part of this effort, Dudek collaborated with DWR staff and DWR’s Tribal Policy Advisor to create two graphic novels, The Fish Story and The Making
The City of San Diego’s Coast Boulevard Sea Cave Emergency Stabilization project addressed an eroding sea cave and improved the storm drain system, roadway, and sidewalks impacted by construction. Dudek provided storm drain system design, aerial surveying and mapping, water pollution control planning, and construction monitoring.
Dudek worked with the Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency (FCGMA) to prepare the groundwater sustainability plans (GSPs) for the Oxnard, Las Posas Valley, and Pleasant Valley basins in Ventura County.
The Mountain Ave. West Groundwater Replenishment Basins project is a 40-acre recharge facility that is part of the San Jacinto Valley Enhanced Recharge and Recovery Program (SJVERRP) operated by the Eastern Municipal Water District. The SJVERRP will create a resilient water supply supporting the sustainable management of the San Jacinto Groundwater Basin (Basin), reduce dependence
Crestline Sanitation District undertook a project to construct a new two-story biosolids dewatering building and primary clarifier at their 0.7-million-gallon-per-day (MGD) Huston Creek WWTP (Wastewater Treatment Plant) to improve reliability and facility performance of the plant.
Clallam County proposed to restore streamflow to the Dungeness River with the creation of an off-channel reservoir on two Washington Department of Natural Resources-owned parcels. Dudek provided cultural resources surveys in support of the Dungeness River flow restoration, which required the installation of new water pipelines and tie-ins to the existing stormwater infrastructure, as well
The City of Santa Cruz Water Department proposed a major capital improvement project to replace an existing dam inlet/outlet works at the Newell Creek Dam with a new intake, outlet features, and pipeline to convey water from an existing river intake, to reservoir, and from the reservoir to the City’s water treatment plant.
