Reclaimed Water System Improvements - Main to Junction
Kevin Mandeville, PG
and management of water resources are objectives of an ordinance passed
by the Austin, TX City Council to reduce water usage by approximately
140 gallons, on average, per day by 2020. One of the provisions
of this ordinance is mandatory connection of new commercial development
within 250 feet of a reclaimed water main. This reclaimed water would
be used for irrigation, filling cooling towers, flushing toilets, and

I-70 Twin Tunnels Expansion - ENR
Best of the Best Award - 2016 Bridge/Highway Category
congratulates everyone involved with the Colorado Department of
Transportation's Twin Tunnels Expansion (today proudly called the
Veterans Memorial Tunnels). It was one of the first Construction
Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) project delivery undertaken by CDOT.
The project entailed the widening of the existing eastbound and
westbound tunnels to enhance traffic flow.
David Kwietnewski worked on the Independent Cost Estimating (ICE),
required by CM/GC prior to construction and was a member of the CM team
that was led by HDR (2013 Eastbound Tunnel) and Yeh and Associates
(2014 Westbound Tunnel).
NASTT's No-Dig Show & ISTT's 35th
April 9-13, 2017
NASTT will be teaming up
with ISTT (International Society for Trenchless Technology) at the 2017
show. ISTT was established in September 1986 with a goal of advancing
the science and practice of trenchless technology for public benefit
through education, training, study and
research. ISTT has 27 affiliated Societies across the
globe. Brierley Associates will be represented by Brian Dorwart,
Nick Strater and Dave Sackett.
Brian Dorwart will
be one of the presenters of - City of Miami Beach Undertakes Historic
Directional Drill to Achieve Sustainable Reliability, a record HDD

This presentation examines the teamwork involved in addressing the
design and installation challenges associated with this project.
Nick Strater and
Thor Young (GHD) will be speaking about a complex HDD program to
install new sanitary forcemains in Anne
Arundel County, MD. The presentation details a
program that involves 12 separate HDD installations of 24-in HDPE,
including a 4200-ft long installation, pushing the limits of this pipe
material. Aside of design and planning, the challenges faced in dealing
with multiple contractors working concurrently will also be touched
upon during this presentation.
