Construction Management & Inspections

Featured Project


Becharof Street, Rakof to Chirikof Water Rehabilitation - AWWU

Client: Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility

PTS provided topographic survey, project scoping assistance, civil engineering, and construction inspection services for the Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) Becharof Street, Rakof to Chirikof Water Rehabilitation project.

Construction for this project consisted of decommissioning approximately 875-linear feet of water main and installing approximately 1,836-linear feet of new PVC water main. Additional work included replacing nine water service key boxes, and one fire hydrant. When completed in the fall of 2020, these improvements created water supply redundancy and improved water supply volume resulting in more reliable water service in the areas of Kupreanof Street, Pavlof Street, Shelikof Street, and Chirikof Court.

During design and construction PTS helped AWWU identify challenges associated with temporary water service requirements, project phasing and work planning to minimize disruptions to water service. Working with the contractor, PTS ensured all residences were notified of any interruption in service and coordinated access to all residences. Due to the depth of excavation and close proximity of this project to Campbell Creek, all excavations required constant dewatering. Maximum efforts were taken to reduce the disturbance to neighboring properties during construction
