The RESCU Program
The RESCU Program describes eleven projects which constitute full replacement and rehabilitation of SVCW’s conveyance system. RESCU includes the Gravity Pipeline, Front of Plant, Pump Stations, and Belmont Force Main projects. The Front of Plant includes six of the eleven projects. The Conveyance System Improvements Environmental Impact Report completed and adopted by the SVCW Commission in April 2017 covers work to be done under all the RESCU Program projects.

RESCU’s Third Leg
We are happy to announce that the SVCW Commission awarded the Stage 1 contract for the Pump Stations Improvement project. This is the “third leg in the stool” of the RESCU program and, together with the Gravity Pipeline and Front of Plant projects, rounds out the major work efforts to completely replace our conveyance system.
Stage 1 of the Progressive Design-Build agreement was awarded to the joint venture team of J.F.Shea and Parsons. This award was the culmination of a robust selection process out of a field of strong competitors. The Shea/Parsons team have a proven track record of working well with owners and providing excellent design and construction on projects similar to the Pump Stations Improvement project.
As the pump stations selection has progressed, so too has the construction for Gravity Pipe and Front-of-Plant. Take a peek at our latest updates for more information on activities. Or, better yet, click on the links to photos and videos to see progress-in-action!
