Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan

RSRI conducted several VE workshops on the design of facilities that are a part of this $8 billion program to restore the water balance and ecology of a major portion of the Florida Everglades. Projects included very large above-ground stormwater runoff storage basins (150,000 Acre-feet and larger); large stormwater pumping facilities (thousands of CFS per location); canal systems; sheet-flow restoration systems; distribution and transfer canals; artificial wetlands construction and wetlands restoration projects. Implemented savings to date resulting from the Value Engineering studies have exceeded $85 million.

San Diego Clean Water Program

RSRI staff conducted more than 20 VE studies of San Diego’s program to expand and upgrade wastewater conveyance and treatment throughout the San Diego Metropolitan area. The project included wastewater treatment plants, water reclamation plants (for water reuse), pipelines, force mains, marine outfalls and tunnels. Accepted savings on this $1 billion program exceeded $125 million.
