Water Infrastructure and Treatment


RMC’s leaders bring hands-on experience in water quality, regulatory requirements, system operations, and facility planning and design. And, we are adept at construction sequencing and completing facility upgrade projects while keeping existing facilities operational.

Water meter installation in Lodi, CA

Water Meter Program

City of Lodi

RMC is providing program management services to the City of Lodi, supporting the planning, design, program, and construction management for the system-wide installation of approximately 13,000 residential water meters throughout the City of Lodi. The multi-phase program also includes the relocation of 28 miles of domestic water distribution pipes. RMC has been responsible for developing the overall eight year budget for the program. We developed initial construction cost estimates for meter installation and main replacement and through two phases of construction, have refined the unit costs based on average unit costs bid to establish a high degree of credibility in the project cost estimates.

Fullerton Grade Separation Relocation, Potable and Recycled Water Facilities

Rowland Water District

RMC assisted Rowland Water District with relocation of its potable water and recycled water pipelines for the Fullerton Road Grade Separation Project. Work included a system hydraulic analyses, design, and construction support for the 8-inch to 12-inch diameter potable water pipelines and 8-inch to 24-inch recycled water pipelines affected by the grade separation project.

Tomich Booster Station Upgrades

Rowland Water District

RMC worked with the Rowland Water District in identifying critical and recommended upgrades for the Tomich Booster Station. The design includes a future 50-hp vertical turbine pump, based on Hydraulic Institute Standards, and replacing aging electrical switchgear and motor control centers. Services also include performing hydraulic evaluation of existing station capacity versus planned water demand with a new development that evaluated the ability of the booster station to meet pumping needs outside of peak power demand periods.

Sacramento water meter plan sheet

Sacramento Accelerated Water Meter Program

City of Sacramento, Department of Utilities

The City of Sacramento plans to install over 51,000 water meters over a five-year period through its Accelerated Water Meter Program, which condenses the meter installation effort from eight years to four years. To address aging infrastructure, many of the installations include additional improvements such as relocating backyard water main pipelines to the street or replacing older pipelines located within the street. As a subconsultant, RMC provides design and program management services, including a comprehensive, best practices-based Accelerated Program Plan, and processes and procedures to manage the program implementation (Phase 2).

Leland reservoir covered

Leland Reservoir Replacement Environmental Impact Report

East Bay Municipal Utilities District

RMC is preparing an Environmental Impact Report for the replacement of the Leland Reservoir located in a residential area in Lafayette, California. The project involves replacement of an aging, open-cut reservoir with two new 8-MG tanks. RMC is also preparing a conceptual design report to address architectural and landscape treatments for the new tanks that will present detailed visual simulations of the new facility.
