Project Description

Project: City of Atlanta Water Supply-Bellwood Quarry
Location: Atlanta, GA
Size: 15.8 acres

Reeves Young is providing heavy civil site work to support the creation of a five-mile tunnel which will go from the Chattahoochee River to the Bellwood Quarry. The tunnel will send 2.4 billion gallons of water to the quarry-enough to supply the city for 30 days. The tunnel will connect the quarry to the Hemphill Water Treatment Plant where the water can be treated.

Reeves Young’s Heavy Civil scope includes a 3,800 SF permanent soil nail wall, 3,500 SF modular block walls, and 48 16″  diameter auger cast piles varying in length from 29-38 ft.

Site utilities include 1,300 LF of 36″ DIP; 3,000 LF of waterline up to 8” in diameter; 1,500 LF of sanitary sewer; 3,700 LF of RCP up to 24” in diameter & HDPE storm sewer.

Scope includes pump station yard piping with 36”-48” ductile iron pipe and 140 LF of  84″ FRE.

Site finishes, include 12,000 SY of asphalt paving; 12,700 SF of permeable concrete paving; 6,500 LF curb & gutter; 13,000 SF concrete flatwork and a Rainwater Harvesting pond.

After the quarry project is completed, the city and the Atlanta Beltline plan to build a massive park in the area.
