Hotevilla-Bacavi Community School
Water and Sewer Rehabilitation
Services Provided: Civil Engineering, Water/WasteWater
Project Description: A fifty year old water and sewer system had reached its functioning capacity. CVL designed the replacement water and sewer systems and provided construction administration services for the School Board.
• During construction, the full-time elementary school (Headstart through 6th grade) would remain in session. Service to on-site teacher housing was also to be maintained. CVL coordinated efforts with the construction ﬁ rm to limit the construction activities to 4 days/week to minimize disruption to the students. Cooperation with all of the stakeholders meant that student schedules remained on track. No lost school days were realized.
• Fire flows needs were met by installing a dedicated 500 gpm package booster pump system with emergency back-up power. On-site ﬁ re protection was a necessity for this site. In discussions with the School Board and concerned parents, CVL discovered that the normal ﬁ re department (located in Tuba City) response times were typically one hour. By installing the booster pumps, the school was now able to sustain its own ﬁ re protection system thereby saving lives and preventing properties lost.
This project is a true representation of a public private partnership creating a greater good for the community.
