Granite Secures $23.8 Million Award for North Texas Watershed Upgrades

WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite (NYSE:GVA) announced the award of three contracts totaling approximately $23.8 million by Ellis-Prairie Soil and Water Conservation District. Located in Ellis County, Texas, the first contract was included in Granite’s fourth quarter 2021 CAP and the remaining two contracts are anticipated to be included in Granite’s first quarter 2022 CAP.

Granite’s scope of work includes the rehabilitation and upgrading of floodwater retarding structures at three sites. In total, these three projects include 178,000 CY of excavation, 51,000 CY of embankment, installation of principal spillway inlets, three labyrinth weir structures and accompanying 18” x 18” slide gates, associated pipework, irrigation, pollution control, and removal of water. The upgrades at each site will be integral in supporting the ongoing operations of the district’s series of structures and dams, which are located throughout the county to help protect downstream areas from flooding after rain events and temporarily control rainfall runoff.

“Granite’s work on these contracts will continue our role of constructing important dam structures and water resource projects in North Texas,” said Matt Shepherd, Granite vice president of the Texas Region. “Our team is pleased with our ability to provide the best value on not just one, but three contracts.
