Backbone Projects

The Backbone Projects

CRW is implementing Phase 1 of an infrastructure improvement plan. The seven Phase 1 “Backbone Projects”, once completed, will provide improved pumping, distribution, and storage of water from the CRW treatment plant east to a proposed reservoir on 152nd Avenue, and south across the Carver Bridge to the Redland pressure zone.

These improvements will greatly enhance the provision of fire flows, system pumping efficiencies, and water quality; and will connect the CRW treatment plant and northern distribution system to a portion of our south service area customers, which will improve distribution and use of CRW’s available water production.

Preliminary planning and design started in Summer 2015, and the estimated completion of Phase 1 projects is early 2020.

Once completed with Phase 1, the District will be planning for implementation of Phase 2 of the Backbone Projects to include additional projects that will enhance our ability to service customers in our south service area and expand many of the same benefits as provided by the Phase 1 projects.  The Phase 2 project schedule will be developed once funding is secured and project designs are completed.
