The Broadway Road Water Campus project is located on the south side of Broadway Road, midway between Apache and Watson roads. The Buckeye City Council approved the multi-phased, multi-year project in 2017, and for its completion the end of Fiscal Year 2021/2022. The project is intended to consolidate and/or upgrade water facilities and water infrastructure throughout the city.
The water service area for this new facility is bounded by the Yuma Road alignment on the north, the Buckeye Canal on the south, Watson Road on the east and Miller Road on the west.
The campus is an important component in the city’s water resource portfolio to provide better quality water to current and future Buckeye residents and businesses. The water treatment plant is being constructed to treat 6mgd (million gallons per day) with the ability to expand to 16mgd in the future. The goal of this project is to develop a strategic long-term vision that will provide high quality water and service to residents and businesses, address current production needs and provide for controlled expansion and upgrades to coincide as development occurs.
The project includes design and construction of a new regional water campus including storage tanks, treatment facilities and booster pumps; design and construction of new wells; design and construction of well transmission lines to the water campus and distribution lines to service area residents and businesses.
Initial construction work has started to construct new wells, transmission line and grading is nearing completion.
Upcoming Construction Activities:
May 3 - construction of a perimeter block wall will take place for approximately one month. This wall is being built to assist with sound reduction during construction activities.
In mid-May, crews will begin construction of the concrete reservoir located near the northern section of the site. Due to daytime temperatures during this time of year, concrete pours are expected to take place overnight hours one to three times per week through Fall 2019.
During this same time, work will also take place in the drainage channel on the west side of Sonoran Vista community to install well and domestic water pipelines from the Broadway Road Water Campus to the Sonoran Vista Water Campus.
