The Engineering and Construction Division is responsible for engineering planning, design and project management, administering public bidding procedures, maintaining all engineering and construction-related records, and providing technical assistance for compliance with local regulations. The work of the division involves the use of consulting engineering firms for projects within the ALCOSAN system.
The Engineering and Construction division is responsible for projects both within the ALCOSAN plant and within the interceptor sewer system which carries sewage and stormwater to ALCOSAN for treatment. Therefore, you may see us on the streets near your homes or businesses as work on sewers is undertaken.
In addition to those "every day" projects, the division also plays a major part in implementing ALCOSAN’s Clean Water Plan to reduce combined sewer overflows, according to a federal Consent Decree. A key part of the Clean Water Plan is to improve the capacity of the ALCOSAN plant and the tunnels and sewer system to better manage and treat water.
