The American Council of Engineering Companies of Oklahoma recently awarded Garver an Engineering Excellence Award in the Water Resources category for work done on the Falls Creek Water Treatment Plant project.
Garver designed and oversaw the installation of a new advanced membrane water treatment plant to replace the Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center’s slow sand filter treatment plant, which has been in operation since the late 1960s. The old water treatment system was simple and effective, but it lacked redundancy and automation. The new water treatment plant is capable of treating the maximum daily demand for the campground’s expected population at full utilization.
Garver worked on the project from beginning to end—from the engineering report to the design, from construction to start-up, and writing the operations and maintenance manuals to assist the operators with the new technology. Despite the tight footprint, the challenging site, and the aggressive schedule circumstances required, the client received a state-of-the-art plant within a very short timeline.
