Water Supply Program
The Water Supply Program is a major undertaking identified through the water master planning process that will improve the reliability of raw water delivery to the Chattahoochee and Hemphill Water Treatment plants. A five-mile tunnel with a diameter of 10-12 feet will connect the raw water intake on the Chattahoochee River to the Chattahoochee WTP, the Hemphill WTP, and the former Bellwood Quarry. Utilization of of quarry will add 2.4 billion gallons of raw water storage to the system making raw water storage available at the Chattahoochee WTP for the first time. Water storage at the quarry will be equivalent to 30 days’ worth of backup water supply. ROHADFOX is part of the team providing Phase 1 preparatory work at and around the former Bellwood Quarry, including a 6,000+ foot long tunnel from the Quarry to the Hemphill Water Treatment Plant, two new pump stations, and associated civil works, including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation and controls.
