CPM Scheduling and Program Controls
Project Description: The Water System Improvement Program (WSIP) involves a broad range of infrastructure projects, varying in size and complexity, and covering all aspects of the water system from dams, reservoirs, pipelines, and tunnels to treatment facilities, pump stations, and water storage tanks. The scope includes the Bay Division Pipeline, San Joaquin Pipeline, Tesla Water Treatment Plant, Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant and others. The scope also included the construction schedule for several sewer projects including the Channel Pump Station, North Shore Forced Main, Cesar Chavez Pipeline Replacement and the Street Improvements Plan. ($4.2 billion)
San Francisco Public Utilities Commission
Bay Division Pipelines 3 and 4
The Seismic Upgrade of Bay Division Pipelines Nos. 3 and 4 is part of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission's Water System Improvement Program. This infrastructure project will seismically upgrade two large diameter drinking water pipelines where they cross the Hayward Fault in Fremont. To protect the water system, the BDPL 3 and 4 Seismic project is replacing large sections of the pipelines with high-tech pipe elements including massive 72-inch diameter ball joints and an equally large slip joint, an articulated concrete seismic vault which is designed for 6 and one half feet of pipeline displacement and other features. The project includes tunneling under the I-80 freeway including an off-ramp. C M Pros provided Project Controls and Management Support. ($32 million)
San Francisco Public Utilities Commission
Sewer Replacement and Upgrade Construction Projects
As part of the WSIP Project Controls scope of work, C M Pros provided constructability reviews and detailed construction schedules for numerous infrastructure system enhancement projects in San Francisco including: Cesar Chavez Pipeline Replacement ($15 Million), North Shore Forced Main ($12 million), Channel Pump Station ($16 million), Southeast Plant Odor Control Projects ($10 million).
C M Pros supported PUC staff in the area of construction scheduling, delay impact analysis, and cost control. We evaluated the baseline and recommended correction to logic and constructability issues. We also recommended detailed breakdown to final testing and commissioning when the project included sophisticated chemical control systems to avoid delays at the close out phase. Parallel cost and schedule forecasts were prepared to avoid potential risks.
Three projects, Sunol Chloramination Facility ($8 Million), Pulgas Chloramination Facility ($15 million) and the Harry Tracy Chloramination Project ($4 million) are part of the overall conversion from chlorine disinfection to use of chloramines to reduce the levels of disinfection byproducts, were coordinated to start at the same time to minimize disruption to the flow of water to the Bay Area and the SFPUC customers. The project's goal is to treat the Hetch Hetchy water at Sunol where chloramine is added before distribution of a portion to East Bay consumers. The remainder then flows to the Pulgas plant near Redwood City, where the water is diverted to the Pulgas plant. Dechloramination chemicals are injected in different points along the chemical mixing pipeline and the water quality is automatically evaluated. After chloramine removal the water is released to Pulgas open channel and discharged to Lower Crystal Spring Reservoir. Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant treats water from Crystal Spring Reservoir and uses chloramine for disinfection before discharge to the distribution system on the upper San Francisco Peninsula. The projects included a 10-foot diameter concrete pipeline, 35-foot deep trenches, extensive dewatering systems, innovative chemical injection systems, advanced chemical control systems, SCADA improvements, significant earth moving and stockpiling, and critical environmental monitoring and mitigation. C M Pros provided scheduling services to the Mendoza/CPM team.
The project goal was to provide reliable water and sewer services to Atwater Federal Prison with built-in redundancy to assure continuous and undisrupted services. The project had a tight budget and schedule. C M Pros spearheaded innovative alternative delivery methods to speed project delivery. C M Pros compiled multiple bid packages and started construction and procurement one month after accepting the project commitment. The project included over four miles of 16" diameter PVC water main and four miles of 14" diameter force main sewer to tie the prison with the city's existing services. It also included: a new water well, service yard, booster pumps station, two 500,000 gallon steel tanks, SCADA system, and emergency generator.
Napa Flood Control District
Napa River Flood Control Project
Project was rerouting of the Napa River to avoid flooding of the downtown district. The scope of work included substantial excavation, backfill, rip rap, and realignment of the Napa Valley Wine Train railroad bridge. The 12-foot vertical extension of the bridge and berm for flood control also required raising the level of local streets and coordination with affected businesses and residences to accommodate the realigned roads and ramps. The primary regulatory agency was the Army Corps of Engineers. Extensive coordination was also required for local and regional water quality and environmental concerns as well local agencies and community activists. Mr. Messiah coordinated scheduling and prepared the schedule plan. ($50 million)
