Atlanta Water Supply – Bellwood Quarry

Reeves Young is providing the site work to support the creation of a five-mile tunnel 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 also connect the quarry to the Hemphill Water Treatment Plant. 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″ ductile iron pipe; 3,000 LF of waterline up to 8” in diameter; 1,500 LF of sanitary sewer; 3,700 LF of reinforced concrete pipe up to 24” in diameter & high-density polyethylene storm sewer. Scope includes pump station yard piping with 36”-48” ductile iron pipe and 140 LF of  84″ fiberglass reinforced epoxy pipe. 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.
