Alternate Water Supply System Condition Assessment

Alternate Water Supply System Condition Assessment

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) manages the Riverton, Wyoming Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Site on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Due to shallow groundwater contamination from the historical milling operations, DOE funded construction of the Alternate Water Supply System to provide safe water to residents within the institutional control boundary. WWC was contracted by the DOE’s Legacy Management contractor, Navarro, to assess the condition of the water system and make recommendations for improvements, including:

  • Service area and service connection evaluation
  • Condition and capacity of three source wells, water storage tank, pipelines, fire hydrants, and valves
  • WaterGEMS hydraulic model
  • Unidirectional flushing analysis and recommendations to control radium buildup in water pipelines
  • Fire flow analysis
  • Transient analysis and valve operating recommendations
  • Surveying and preparation of as-constructed drawings
  • Cost estimates for recommended upgrades
