Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2010/07/20 - McCarthy, recently began construction on a $14.7 million contract to expand the Indian Springs Collection & Treatment Plant for the Clark County Water Reclamation District.
McCarthy, one of the nation’s leading water and wastewater builders, recently began construction on a $14.7 million contract to expand the Indian Springs Collection & Treatment Plant for the Clark County Water Reclamation District, adding to the building company’s growing portfolio of public works projects.
“As a community-based builder, it is important for us to get involved early and work through the administrative process with the project stakeholders,” said Ryan Heeter, project director for McCarthy. “As a result, we established and built a strong relationship with the County and all other parties, which enabled us to hit the ground running.”
The expansion project calls for construction of a new, half-million gallon per day wastewater treatment plant that will serve the Indian Springs community and Creech Air Force Base (AFB). McCarthy will also upgrade the existing facilities currently serving Indian Springs, which includes two lift stations, one on Creech AFB and one near the Indian Springs Casino. Additional work will include demolition of the existing Creech AFB water/wastewater treatment plant. In all, McCarthy will install and re-route more than four miles of piping and electrical duct banks including performing a portion of work under US 95.
This is the second water project McCarthy currently has underway in Nevada. In addition to the Indian Springs Wastewater Treatment project, McCarthy is currently constructing a $19 million wastewater treatment facility expansion in Mesquite, Nev. Upon completion in the spring 2011, the 50,000-square-foot facility expansion nearly doubles the capacity of the city’s existing plant.
