Engineering Manager (Capital Improvement)

Description
POSITION OVERVIEW:
Responsible for planning, scheduling, designing, technical review, contract administration, and inspection of reclamation facility and conveyance improvements.

Participates in long-range developmental projections as required for budgeting and funding operations.

Supervises personnel in a manner consistent with utility policies and procedures.
 

Engineering Manager of Capital Improvements Leadership Opportunities This position will lead Little Rock Water Reclamation Authority through the final stages of a Consent Administrative Order (CAO) by managing various collection system and facility projects that will mitigate wet weather overflows.

Among the notable projects: Construction Administration for the High Rate Filtration project (Parallel Treatment) at Adams Field Water Reclamation Facility.

LRWRA is currently under construction on one of the most innovative projects for the wastewater industry in the state of Arkansas.

Upon the completion the facility will have the have the ability to treat up to 94 MGD of wastewater continuously – a wet weather peak flow – after treating 16 MGD on an average day.

The new plant configuration will have high rate filters “paralleling” biological treatment to achieve this new hydraulic capacity.

During average dry days, the filters will be used in front of disinfection to enhance that process.

Ultimately, the filter system will factor into the anticipated water reuse system under consideration.

Jamison Road Pump Station Improvements.

The 25-year-old pump station needs renewal and reliability upgrades.

Back-up power study.

LRWRA is looking to reallocate generator assets to “right size” our back up power needs at plants and pump stations.

Collection System Rehabilitation Projects.

Perhaps the core of our efforts to mitigate wet weather overflows and sustain our infrastructure is the collection system “rehab” projects.

The focus of these projects is to reduce infiltration/inflow while addressing critically rated structural deficiencies which could lead to bigger issues.

Concurrent projects with CAO: Water Reuse LRWRA produces a commodity which could be developed into a valuable resource for our community.

We are leading the state in water reuse effort.

State regulatory agencies are meeting with LRWRA to develop a vision and direction for the future of reuse.

Beneficial Use of Biosolids and Biogas Again, LRWRA produces a commodity that is of value to our community.

Beneficial use of biosolids needs to be evaluated by LRWRA.
