Expanding the Roaring Fork Water Treatment Plant in Carbondale, CO.

The WTP project included design, permitting, bidding and construction administration for an expansion of the Roaring Fork Water Treatment Plant. RFE investigated multiple technologies in order to determine the most cost-effective upgrade solution for the Town. Since the plant is a main source of potable water for the Town RFE worked with the Town and selected Contractor to come up with a sequence of work to keep the project online with minimum service disruptions. The plant was switched from a membrane plant to a filter plant and expanded from 1.0 MGD to 1.5 MGD.
