Black & Veatch solved both by providing design and project management. New spillway gates were installed and a new powerhouse was built on the opposite abutment of the dam from the existing plant. By building on the Wisconsin side of the river, the old facility on the Michigan side was able to remain in operation during construction. Learn More Arlington Outlet HydroPower Project Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX The Arlington Outlet has a design capacity of 200 million gallons per day (mgd) and is used as a discharge point to supply Lake Arlington. Pressure-reduction valves at the outlet had been burning about 154 feet of head to dissipate energy prior to discharging. Black & Veatch provided permitting, engineering, construction management, and commissioning services, to take advantage of the wasted energy by adding a new hydroelectric turbine generator at the Arlington Outlet. Learn More Lower Baker Unit 4 Powerhouse Concrete, WA A new operating license issued for the Baker River Project called for flow releases from the Lower Baker Dam to improve movement of migratory fish. To help optimize the use of the Baker River water resource for power generation while accommodating the flow release requirement, Black & Veatch designed a new powerhouse and other hydropower components as part of the design-build team for the Lower Baker Unit 4 Powerhouse project. Learn More Lewis River Fish Passage Systems Southwest Washington Clean hydroelectric energy is a key part of many renewable energy portfolios in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. Anadromous fish runs in the very rivers that produce hydroelectric energy are a defining characteristic of the unique environment of the region. Two Black & Veatch projects on the Lewis River in southwest Washington are helping to preserve both hydropower capacity and the natural environment.

Aging infrastructure is primarily to blame, as an estimated 40 percent of U.S. water and wastewater pipes are beyond their life expectancy, notes a recent article in WaterWorld. The article goes on to say that half of forecasted capital expenditures by water providers will cover new installation and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure Predictive Maintenance Offers Promise in Asset Management When it comes to understanding how water utilities approach asset maintenance, survey data shows that, on average, they tend to weight their efforts more heavily toward preventive maintenance. The Stormwater Resilience Roadmap: Integration of Delivery Frameworks and Financial Capacity A structured path to a paradigm shift in stormwater management can be developed by integrating an alternative program planning and execution framework, and by enhancing financial resilience through effective funding mechanisms.
