The East County AWP Project consists of three packages. The JPA approved the award of Progressive Design Build Agreements for Packages 1 and 2 in October 2020. Project construction is expected to begin in 2022, with the Program beginning to produce water in 2025.

Package 1
Package 1 has been awarded to AECOM/WMV IV, a Joint Venture. The Notice to Proceed with Phase 1 work for Package 1 was delivered to AECOM/WMV IV on October 8, 2020. Components of Package 1 include: a 16 MGD Water Recycling Facility, an 11.5 MGD Advanced Water Purification Facility, a solids handling facility, a product water pump station and a new visitor’s center. The progressive nature of Package 1, Phase 1 provides the JPA with the opportunity to evaluate and price options and value‐engineering (i.e., innovative) ideas, refine the Project design, continue to eliminate unknowns, and identify and evaluate project risks. 

Package 2
Package 2 has been awarded to Orion Construction Corp. Package 2 includes designing and constructing a 10‐mile Advanced Water Purification pipeline, Dechlorination Facility and inlet to Lake Jennings. 

Both Package 1 and 2 will proceed forward with Phase 1 work and not‐to‐exceed dollar amounts. During Phase 1 of each package, the JPA will collaborate with AECOM/Lyles and Orion to develop and finalize the scope of work and a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for Phase 2 (and Phase 3 for Package 1 only). Phase 1 work for both packages is planned to begin in October 2020 and run through January 2022.

Package 3
The final Request for Proposals for Package 3 was issued to the shortlisted teams on July 23, 2020 and proposals are due to the JPA by 3:00 pm, PST, October 14, 2020. The third package will be considered by the JPA Board at a meeting in December 2020.
