Civiltec Awarded Town of Chloride On-Call

Chloride Domestic Water Improvement District

Civiltec is always excited to work in new areas and help make improvements within new communities. The Town of Chloride is no exception! Chloride Domestic Water Improvement District has awarded Civiltec with an on-call at will service contract to provide professional engineering services to the community. Civiltec’s team will survey, design and provide construction phase services for various water system improvement projects, beginning with the replacement of all of the existing water lines within the approximately one square mile service area. 

Chloride is a one-time silver mining camp in Mohave County, Arizona, founded in 1862, and is considered the oldest continuously inhabited mining town in the state. The Chloride Post Office, also established in 1862, is the oldest continuously operating post office in the State of Arizona. The town, like many of the smaller communities in Arizona, is officially identified as a Census-Designated Place, with a current population of approximately 229 residents. Chloride “the living ghost town” is a tourist destination in Arizona. Founded in 1862, much of this infrastructure needs modernization to accommodate the resident’s demands.  Improvements will primarily focus on the replacement of the entire water distribution system throughout the one-square-mile Town limits. The Chloride distribution system would also benefit from a new dedicated supply line from the pump stations to an existing main storage tank, an additional 50,000-gallon tank and appurtenances, a standpipe/water fill station, and replacement of water meters and fire hydrants. Our work includes ground and aerial drone surveying and mapping, engineering design of the improvements, hydraulic modeling to support our permitting submittals to the local governing State and local agencies, public bidding of the construction, construction observations, and permitting activities.  The work is being funded via an American Rescue Plan Act grant, managed by Mohave County and the Chloride Domestic Water Improvement District.  

 We are excited to add our services to the history of Chloride under the Project Management of Richard Aldridge, PE, and our Prescott Office Staff.
