Severe drought brought critical water supply shortages to Midland, Texas. To alleviate the problem, the Midland County Fresh Water Supply District No. 1, featuring the joint venture of Black & Veatch and Garney Construction, was contracted to deliver water from a city-owned well field some 60 miles west. In less than 12 months, the District team designed, procured and constructed all necessary infrastructure to deliver up to 20 MGD of water to the growing city.
