Woodruff Roebuck Water District

Water System Improvements – Phases I & II

Summit assisted the Woodruff-Roebuck Water District (WRWD) with the planning, design, identification of available property, permitting, bidding, and construction administration for the construction of a new elevated water storage tank, a new booster pump station, and associated water main extensions.

Project Purpose:

Historically, WRWD purchased its water from the Spartanburg Water System. On January 2013, WRWD began operating its own water treatment facility, located at the confluence of North and South Tyger Rivered in Spartanburg County, modifying the system’s hydraulics. This change created a need for a new hydraulic pressure zone for the Roebuck, Stone Station, Walnut Grove, and Moore communities served by WRWD. The project was funded by General Service Bonds and executed in 2 phases (Phase I – new elevated storage tank, Phase II – the new Moore booster pump station)

Project Description:
Phase I consisted of:

  • 1.0 MG composite elevated water storage tank
  • 1,500 LF of 16-inch DIP water main
  • 175 LF of 12-inch DIP water main
  • 2 system connections

Phase 2 consisted of:

  • Demolition of the existing pump station (out of service for 20 years)
  • Construction of a new 1,750 GPM booster pump station
  • Site grading, paving, and fencing
  • Yard piping

The project was completed in the Fall of 2013 with a final construction cost just over $3M
