Navigant wins Victorville pipeline contract

Navigant Consulting Inc. has announced that the company’s water resources practice, Bookman-Edmonston, has been awarded a USD 335,000 contract by the City of Victorville to
design a large-capacity water supply pipeline that will carry cooling water to a power plant being built in that city. Water supplied by the Mojave Water Agency from its connection to the California State Water Project will be conveyed through the 24-inch pipeline approximately three miles to the High Desert Power Plant. As a conservation measure, the water will be recirculated through the power plant the maximum number of times until too warm to serve as cooling water. Robert Roughton, Managing Director of the water resources practice, said that Bookman-Edmonston engineers will design the pipeline, valves, turnout facilities and related structures. They will also assist in completing the geotechnical investigations and mapping, prepare the technical specifications and contract documents that will be used to solicit bids for the project construction, as well as provide construction management and inspection services. The power plant, which will produce between 730 and 840mw, is projected to be on line by mid-2003.
