Atlanta, GA - We are pleased to announce that PC-Russell, a Joint Venture has awarded Atkinson Construction an $81 million contract for the Atlanta Water Supply Program Phase 1 Extension. The Phase 1 Extension connects the old Bellwood Quarry to the Hemphill Water Treatment Facility. At the Bellwood Quarry site, Atkinson will construct four shafts, approximately 1,000 lineal-feet of adit connections joining the shafts to each other, and one main 400-foot deep tunnel. The main tunnel will run approximately 5,500 lineal-feet northwest to the Hemphill site, where the project team will construct five additional small-diameter well shafts.

The project is projected to achieve LEED® Silver certification. Construction will begin in March 2016 and is scheduled to be complete in November 2018.

“The Water Supply Program is a top infrastructure priority of Mayor Kasim Reed and will allow the Department of Watershed Management to serve its customers for generations to come,” said Commissioner Jo Ann Macrina.
