City of Austin Waller Creek Tunnel Value Engineering

Austin, TX
Value Engineering
Quick Facts
  • One mile of 22-foot to 26-foot diameter stormwater tunnel
  • Under downtown Austin
  • Tunnel will reduce the 100-year floodplain by approximately 28 acres

The project will allow for further development of downtown and facilitate the creation of walkable creek areas and parks.  In addition to the tunnel, the project includes stream bank restoration, inlet and outlet structures, and a pump system to maintain water quality in the tunnel and creek.  KFA assisted in performing an independent cost estimate of the entire project at 90% design, participated in a multi-day value engineering workshop during design of the project, performed an energy audit of the recirculation pumping system, and wrote a technical memorandum detailing anticipated pumping and energy requirements to maintain adequate dissolved oxygen levels in the tunnel.
