Engineers Club monthly meeting - see the Home page for logistics.
In April 2016, Tennessee American Water (TNAW) had a large break on the main transmission line feeding about 20,000 customers in north Chattanooga. After the repair was made, the need for redundant connections across the Tennessee River became even more pressing. Fast forward two years and TNAW is currently installing a second large transmission line across the river. This $3.2 million dollar project is slated to be completed by the end of 2018. The planning, permitting and construction of this project was a major undertaking that TNAW hasn't tackled since the last line was installed in 1963. Come hear all the unique and exciting details that go into planning a major construction project in the heart of our downtown area.
Speaker: Kurk Stafford is the Engineering Manager for Tennessee American Water, the engineering group plans and manages capital projects as well as system planning. Mr Stafford start his career at TNAW in 2016.
