Clear Creek Tahoe is a residential golf course community located southwest of Carson City, Nevada and east of Spooner Summit. A golf course/community clubhouse that will house fitness and recreation along with dining and banquet facilities for all residents will accompany the approximate 384 homes and golf course. The development consists of nearly 1600 acres.
Manhard was contracted to provide total engineering design services. The sewer portion of our scope was to create a sewer master plan which would determine the best method to service the development, and to design the sanitary sewer infrastructure in accordance with the sewer master plan.
Manhard was also contracted to create a water master plan which would determine the best and most cost effective method to service the Clear Creek development, and to design the water system infrastructure in accordance with the master plan.
It was determined the most efficient method to serve the development was to connect to the existing Douglas County West Valley System. In order to analyze both offsite and onsite improvements a WaterCad model was created. The development of the model required working with the county to insure that existing facilities were properly represented. In addition, the model had to account for future development of Douglas County that would dictate the size of offsite improvements.
