McCarthy Building Cos. Inc. is expanding the Indian Springs Collection & Treatment Plant for the Clark County Water Reclamation District.

The $14.7-million expansion project calls for construction of a new, half-million gallon per day wastewater treatment plant that will serve the Indian Springs community and Creech Air Force Base. McCarthy will also upgrade the existing facilities currently serving Indian Springs which includes two lift stations, one on Creech AFB and one near the Indian Springs Casino. Additional work will include demolition of the existing Creech AFB water/wastewater treatment plant. In all, McCarthy will install and re-route more than 4 mi of piping and electrical duct banks including performing a portion of work under U.S. 95.

In addition to the Indian Springs Wastewater Treatment project, McCarthy is currently constructing a $19-million wastewater treatment facility expansion in Mesquite. Upon completion in the spring 2011, the 50,000-sq-ft facility expansion nearly doubles the capacity of the city�s existing plant.
