The project involved renovation of the sports and play fields for all 34 schools to improve playability, reduce water use, and improving maintainability. The existing fields were evaluated for playability, soil health, and condition of the existing irrigation infrastructure. Where available, coordination with three separate water agencies allowed many of the systems to be upgraded to utilize recycled water.
The District’s irrigation standards were studied for opportunities to improve equipment performance and installation procedures. The introduction of a centralized, weather based irrigation control system with flow monitoring was established to improve the functionality and efficiency of their irrigation.
Construction documents were prepared for each school to facilitate the public bid process.
Construction administration services included pre-bid, observation, and contractor pay application reviews
Sendero fields is a beautiful combination of athletic fields, active use park space, and open space with over 12 acres of California friendly and naturalized landscape. The irrigation system was designed to use a single point of connection...
44 acre sports park with athletic fields, skate facility, dog park, and passive circulation experiences.
The irrigation system was designed to utilize tertiary treated recycled water with limited pressure due to proximity to an adjacent golf course. One centralized booster pump station with variable frequency drive pump logic provided a range of pressure options at higher efficiency while minimizing power consumption. A distribution pipe system delivers water to 12 centrally controlled systems allowing simultaneous flow sensing and monitoring within the prescribed watering window.
Planning involved careful coordination of existing and new recycled water utilities to irrigate the entire facility. Facilities include the golf clubhouse, hotel, bungalows, villas, casitas, recreation areas, surrounding fuel modification and street landscaping.
Initial water usage analysis studies were conducted for the project to help determine the feasibility of a first flush / nuisance flow water capture system for reuse with irrigation of the onsite and adjacent golf course.
Design development drawings and construction document services provided innovative design solutions to maximize water efficiency and reduce runoff.
