Ongoing PWI project with open-cut, slipline and jacking sections

The Paradise Whitney Interceptor (PWI) project in Las Vegas is one of the largest projects of its kind in North America. It was conceived by the Clark County Water Reclamation District as a means of helping serve the needs of a rapidly growing population.

The multiyear project will cover a total of 13 miles and covers terrain with varying ground conditions and requires open-cut, slipline and jacking sections along the route. This is the most important jacking project to be undertaken in the country to date.
