The Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority contracted CSA Group to provide project and construction management services for the Río Blanco Off-stream Reservoir and Intake Facilities Project. The project increased the raw water intake to accommodate the existing 18 MGD Río Blanco Water Treatment Plant. The project major components include:

Earthen Dam Embankment: An off-stream earthen dam on the east side of the Río Blanco floodplain with a normal pool (full reservoir), elevation of 28.75 meters and a maximum design flood elevation of 29.95 meters. The reservoir will have approximately 4.4,000,000 cubic meters of active storage. Ancillary work included pipelines from 42” to 66” diameter and Pump Stations

CSA’s value engineering and procurement management process resulted in a 15% reduction in capital investment.
