The City of Stockton’s wastewater treatment plant was aging and faced new discharge permit requirements with limits on nitrogen in the treated effluent discharged to the San Joaquin River. Over $220 million in improvements are being procured through a progressive design build contract with a joint venture design build team. Improvements include new screening, influent pumping, grit removal, secondary and tertiary treatment with denitrification, cloth media filtration, ultraviolet disinfection and personnel buildings. The plant will have an average flow capacity of 40 mgd and a peak flow capacity of 105 mgd.
West Yost was asked to join the project management team partnered with City staff throughout the design-build process. Design progressed through 2019 and construction began in September 2019. Over the course of the project, West Yost provides project management at the City’s offices, coordinating the City and design-build team efforts, preparing an application for a $108 million federal WIFIA loan, assisting with design review and overseeing construction monitoring. West Yost, teamed with Robertson-Bryan, Inc., will continue providing project management services through completion of construction in 2023.
