<p class="MsoNormal">Speaker, Charlie Leder, is a principal engineer
with the
Water Authority and works in its Water Resources, Planning, and
Engineering
Division which manages all CIP for Water Authority facilities.  He
brings
the Water Authority 35 years of practical experience in planning,
design, and
construction of water and wastewater utility infrastructure.  The past
30
years of Mr. Leder’s professional career have focused on improving the
Water
Authority’s water and wastewater facilities as well as those belonging
to other
NM municipal and tribal utilities. <br>
<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">The Southside Water Reclamation Plant (SWRP) is
the largest
facility for water recycling in NM and has a capacity 5 times larger
than any
other comparable facility in the state.  First commissioned in 1962,
the
SWRP converts raw wastewater into clean effluent that can be returned
to the
environment while also generating bio-solids for compost and rangeland
reclamation and electricity to power a portion of the treatment
process. 
This presentation summarizes some of the “green things” done each day
at the
SWRP and provides an overview of plant assets now used.  With some of
these assets in use since 1962 and limited funds available for
renovation/repair since the last major upgrade in 1998, the SWRP is due
for an
“extreme makeover”.  The balance of this presentation describes the
asset
management principles the Water Authority will now use to evaluate,
design, and
construct $250 million worth of renovations committed to the SWRP to be
sure
that limited ratepayer funds are well-spent.   Particular focus will
be given to describing future capital projects to be implemented in the
next 5
years and the proposed method for project implementation.<o:p></o:p></p>
