Mr. Thompson served as the City of Austin Project Manager on the $2.5M project to replace deteriorating water and wastewater lines in the alley ways of Austin’s Central Business District (CBD). The utility lines were first installed in the 1930’s, and the system was expanded as Austin’s Central Business District grew.
The existing lines were subject to frequent breakage and leakage and repair costs began to increase above a level acceptable to the Austin Water Utility. The project included over 6,000 linear feet of upgrades to water and wastewater lines, as well as pavement repairs in the impacted streets and alleys. Atlas worked closely with the design team, City of Austin Construction Inspection (CID), Austin Water Utility (AWU), the Contractor and multiple downtown stakeholders to coordinate the design and construction of the project.
