Abstract/Artist Statement

The small town of Courtland, established in the 1800’s, is located in California along the Sacramento River, southwest of Sacramento and northeast of Stockton, CA. A majority of the land is occupied by single residential housing units. There are also some institutional, industrial and commercial facilities. The entire Courtland community is approximately 110 acres large and is home to about 355 residents. Water service is provided by various small water distributors, one of which is the Gregg Water System. The owner and operator of the system, Norman Gregg, has expressed interest in parting ways with his responsibilities. Historically, the existing system has had issue consistently meeting the maximum contaminant level requirements for arsenic. The improvements required for compliance would cost significantly more than what system reserves would support and what can be financed by the current owner. Because of these factors, a community group has formed to pursue formation of a local special district for the purpose of providing water service within the existing Gregg Water System service area. In light of this effort, a neighboring water system has also shown interest in consolidating with the proposed new water district. The goal of this project is to consolidate what are known as the Gregg Community Water System and the Courtland Boardwalk Water System into a single system to be operated by the proposed newly formed Sac_Delta Community Water District. JAWB Engineering proposes to provide the civil engineering design services for the new water district. The major project components include the following design elements: general site development, design a structure for housing the facility, water storage tanks, foundation design, pump selection, sizing of pipes and treatment for water quality.
