Mobile Area Water and Sewer System (MAWSS) –
System Master Plan
CERM teamed with a prime engineering consultant firm in the development and preparation of a comprehensive risk-based water and wastewater system master plan. The effort was the first time MAWSS developed a comprehensive master plan to evaluate the systems’ existing conditions and identify improvement needs in order for the water and wastewater systems to remain a viable water supply source for the Mobile County area. The master plan provides the road map for implementation of capital and operational improvements for the next 10 years and beyond.
As sub-consultant CERM performed the following master planning activities:
Assessed and identified capital improvements for Big Creek Lake and Big Creek Lake Raw Water Conveyance Systems.
Developed the Big Creek Lake Hazardous Material Spill Mitigation and Watershed Protection Plan.
Facilitated the comprehensive assessment of the Mobile River intake, pump station, regulatory house, and conveyance network (pipes, canals, reservoirs).
Conducted the geotechnical review of the water treatment plants.
Collected and reviewed the soils and water quality data for Eslava Creek and Halls Mill Creek PCCP Force Mains.
Developed the population projections, water demand and wastewater capacity projections, and capital improvement projections for the system’s growth and development.
