Project Overview

This project demonstrates Valentine’s ability to develop a water campus design on an expedited schedule and our knowledge of well equipping, well head treatment, booster pump station design, and reservoir and chlorine system design.  As a result of a compressed schedule and limited information at initiation of project, this project proves their resilience to adjust to changing design conditions.  This project was comprised of design for a new well, 1,600 gpm booster pump station, 250,000 gallon reservoir, and chlorination system on an expanding detention center site in Adelanto, San Bernardino, CA. The County hired Valentine to perform a fast track well drilling design and well equipping/water campus design so that this design package could be added as an addendum to the prison bid package.  The design was completed within two months to facilitate the client’s schedule. After the well was drilled, the water quality data determined that fluoride and arsenic were above the MCLs. Valentine quickly turned around a design for RO treatment with pre-filtration and post calcite filtration with caustic addition along with a modified well pump design to address the new water quality issues.  Valentine assisted with providing necessary documents for building permit acquisition and responses/drawing modifications to review comments.
