The West Yost Program Management Team continues to develop pre-design Technical Memoranda (TM). The following pre-design TMs are in process and anticipated to be available by late June:

  • Water Treatment Plant (WTP)
  • Raw Water Pump Station
  • Raw and Finished Water Transmission Main
  • Operations Technology and Cybersecurity

The Program Management Team is also continuing to prepare the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Design-Build teams interested in pursuing this Project opportunity. This RFQ is anticipated to be issued in the late July time frame.

The Program Management Team has worked with Division of Drinking Water (DDW) staff and received approval from them on an extended water quality monitoring plan.

The Team also continues to coordinate with staff from both the City of Ceres and the City of Turlock regarding encroachment permits. The Team is also coordinating with TID for an encroachment permit for the Ceres Finished Water Transmission Main.

SRWA has selected the firm of Project Finance Advisory, Ltd. to provide financial evaluation services related to DB team submittals for the SRWA Project.

The Team has continued to collect bi-weekly water quality samples form the Tuolumne River at a location directly above the infiltration gallery. These samples will help the SRWA fine tune the eon-going pre-design of the treatment processes needed to ensure the highest quality drinking water is provided to the cities of Ceres and Turlock.
