May 2011-October 2013: Mississippi State Department of Health-Bureau of Public Water Supply

Project Manager: Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund (DWSRLF) Program
Seeing through the administration (fund distribution) and construction/replacement/rehabilitation of drinking water facilities which included such tasks:

  • Facilities Plan/Engineering Report Review
  • Plans, Specification, and Contract Documents Review
  • Construction Management
    • Bid Package Review
    • Change Order Review
    • Construction Site Visits
    • Payment request reviews for approval
  • Extensive interaction with project engineers, city/water association’s officials, and the public


Troy Water Association Water Well (Pontotoc, MS): The project included the construction of a 400 G.P.M water well (with all related treatment appurtenances, including a generator) and a quarter mile water line tie-in to the existing distribution system. The project was necessary because one of the existing water wells began pumping sand due to a cracked casing, which would ultimately lead to failure of the well and threaten water supply to the residents of the water system.

City of Baldwyn Water System Improvements (Baldwyn, MS): The Baldwyn project was a multi-scope project that included source capacity expansion for the city system, providing source back up to a one well system within the city limits, repairing an emergency tie-in between the two water systems, and implementing an Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system. The city system was approaching a critical 75% usage of total water system capacity and drilled a new water well (with all related treatment appurtenances, including a generator) along with a 100,000 gallon elevated storage tank. The utility system drilled a new well to meet state requirements on having a back-up source for a public water system.

City of Columbia System-Wide Water Improvements (Columbia, MS): This project included the rehabilitation (sand-blast and painting) of the City’s two elevated water storage tanks, water treatment plant improvements (including service pump replacements and adding an addition to the existing chemical building), and finally the implementation of an AMR system.

Water System Improvements for Good Hope Water Association (Jeff Davis County, MS): Lowland Water Association was merged with Good Hope Water Association and all water treatment was moved to the existing Good Hope treatment plant. The project involved upgrading undersized water lines within the Lowland footprint and constructing a booster station at the former Lowland treatment plant due to elevation differences between the two plant sites. The improvements at the Good Hope plant included the construction of a 350 G.P.M water well, doubling the aeration capacity, and construction of a transmission main from the Good Hope site to the booster station site.

McHenry Water Association New Water Well (Wiggins, MS): This project included the construction of a 750 G.P.M. water well to replace and abandon the existing water well, which was nearly 40 years old.

Conehoma Water Association New Elevated Storage Tank (Attala County, MS): This project included the construction of a 100,000 gallon elevated storage tank to replace a hydro-pneumatic tank at the well site to add capacity. The project also included installation of a system-wide SCADA system and generators at each of the well sites.

City of Wiggins Water Distribution Project (Wiggins, MS): This project included the replacement of old, leaky, undersized, galvanized pipes that were also contributing to pressure and water quality problems. The City also had problems with multiple water mains, and this project eliminated redundancy and looped the system.
