EAC was tasked with the restoration of aqueduct sites.  This multi-faceted project included work at both unique sites. The first site, the Georgetown Reservoir, consists of three gatehouses and a subterranean pipe vault of historical significance. Architectural services included analysis of the historic structures for causes of structural and cosmetic research of original features and finishes, and recommendations for restoration and repair.  Engineering services included analysis of historical piping functions, topological survey and analysis of underwater sediment in earth-bottomed basins. Also included was the addition of a flood control pump station, and a new hydrant flushing system for maintenance of the settling basins.  The second site, the Dalecarlia Forebay and Spoils area, serves as the primary settling basin for the Dalecarlia Water Treatment Plant.

An improved drying and containment basin was designed to process the spoils from the frequent dredging operations in the Forebay and Spoils Area, serves as the primary settling basin for the Dalecarlia Water Treatment Plant. 

An improved drying and containment basin was designed to process the spoils from the frequent dredging operations in the Forebay while mitigating any adverse impacts to a stream that traverses the site. Engineering services included performing site surveys, and producing construction drawings, specifications and cost estimates for the basin and piping networks.All designs were executed in accordance with the National Historic Preservation Act, the National Environmental Protection Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and all applicable state and local codes.
