CVWD Well Project Wins Not Just One, but Two Awards!


San Luis Obispo, August 28, 2019–Cannon’s collaborative efforts for a new well-reactivation project with Crescenta Valley Water District (CVWD) led to award-winning events. The project was recently awarded ASCE’s Outstanding Project of the Year and ASCE’s LA Section Water Treatment Project of the Year. 

The result of the project was a new biological nitrate removal treatment facility and reactivation of Well No. 2. Originally built in 1922, Well No. 2 has been out of service for more than 40 years due to high nitrate levels. At the time it was taken out of service, there existed no technology that could effectively remove the nitrate out of the water in order to provide safe water solutions. CVWD decided to implement a solution that could efficiently remove nitrates using a hydrogen-based membrane biofilm reactor.

Cannon was selected by CVWD to provide construction management of the installation of the necessary facilities that would help bring Well No. 2 back to life. Cannon provided services in Construction Management and full time inspection. About Cannon’s use of technology for the project, Gary Roepke, Project Manager of the well project said “Using Procore for the construction management software allowed us to keep records of the progress of the project on a minute-by-minute basis, including photos.” David Gould (CVWD Chief Engineer) valued Cannon’s innovative work using Procore.

Cannon’s contribution to this project is an actualization of principles we hold strongly: community involvement, sustainability, innovation, and, as always–reliable and responsive solutions.
