|February 14, 2018 Luncheon - Grand Canyon: Trans-Canyon Waterline Replacement
Speakers: Ms. Kris Provenzano, Grand Canyon Program Manager for Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Rehabilitation, United States National Park Service and Rich Thornton, HDR.
The Grand Canyon National Park's water system supplies drinking and utility water to over 6 million visitors and 2,500 permanent residents at the park. The single largest component of the water system is the water delivery pipeline from the Roaring Springs pump house to the Indian Garden pump house. This approximate 12.5-mile pipeline has been experiencing splits and breaks. The presentation will be an overview of the existing trans-canyon waterline, the preferred upgrade alternative, environmental issues, and the challenges of managing visitation and construction.
The Phoenix Branch will also conduct the Life Member Ceremony and present selected ASU Engineering Students with Life Member Scholarships.
