Anchorage Water & Wastewater Utility 92nd Avenue PRV Facility
Location: Anchorage, AK
CRW provided design for AWWU’s new PRV facility that extended the 347 Pressure Zone (PZ) to the west and closer to the 260 PZ boundary, improving system pressures for customers between Old Seward and New Seward Highways. The above-grade facility included construction of a utility building to house the PRVs, piping, SCADA, and appurtenances. During construction, AWWU added an in-line turbine to generate electricity using the differential between pressure zones. The resulting power generation is used to supplement electrical loads for the nearby AWWU King Street Operations & Maintenance Facility.
