Segment 3-A1 Update

The Surface Water Supply Project is currently advertising the Segment 3-A1 Construction Project. Work of Contract is construction of approximately 14,000 linear feet of 42-inch diameter waterline with all necessary valves and appurtenances, along a CenterPoint Energy powerline corridor from south of Clay Road to the connection to Segment C located north of Tanner Road. The proposed water line installation will consist of primarily open cut construction; however, trenchless methods are required at crossings of HCFCD facilities, City of Houston (COH) roads, CenterPoint Energy Overhead Power Towers, and crossing of private/public utilities. Additionally, the Work requires installation of air valves, butterfly valves, pre-cast concrete manholes, and cathodic protection facilities, and removal and replacement of existing fencing and pavement surfaces (concrete, asphalt, and gravel).

Overview

We are currently in the final stages of the Design Phase of the SWSP and have held multiple contractor outreach events to encourage participation by local minority-owned and small businesses.

As the SWSP Team moves forward with construction, we encourage local minority-owned and small businesses to team with the SWSP Prequalified Contractors to deliver this project.

Surface Water Supply Project Prequalified Contractors

The following contractors have been prequalified to support construction of Segments A, B, and C of the Surface Water Supply Project. Local subcontractors interested in supporting delivery of the Surface Water Supply Project are encouraged to contact these contractors for potential teaming opportunities.

Please note: Contractors to support the Segment B3 “Long Tunnel” and the pump stations will undergo separate prequalification at a future date.

In response to this community feedback, the WHCRWA and NFBWA are undertaking a four-step approach to encourage diversity in contracting and implementation of the SWSP by:
