Plan, Procure, Execute: Lessons from the East County Advanced Water Purification Project
Joe Gillman will participate as a panelist for the session entitled "Plan, Procure, Execute: Lessons from the East County Advanced Water Purification Project" during the 2021 Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference on April 13, 2021.
During this session, Joe and his fellow panelists will discuss the East County Advanced Water Purification (ECAWP) Project, a collaborative effort between Padre Dam Municipal Water District, Helix Water District, City of El Cajon and County of San Diego to create a local, sustainable and drought-tolerant drinking water supply. The ECAWP Project consists of interrelated progressive design-build/transitional operations contracts. Three contracts were signed in 2020, and a fourth procurement is anticipated for mid-2021. This panel discussion involves the ECAWP’s administrator and will provide practical advice and lessons learned for public agencies based on the planning and procurement stages of a complex progressive design-build project.
