Y2 Consultants served a variety of roles for a luxury campsite outside Capitol Reef National Park in Torrey, Utah including total project manager, owner’s representative, civil and structural engineer, and landscape architect. Y2 completed the design and permitting of utilities including water treatment and distribution and wastewater treatment; the site planning and engineering for the installation of teepees, conestoga wagons, tents, and cabins; the design of a new restaurant, and the remodel of existing front lobby.
Phase 1 of the project included creating a site plan for 20 new cabins, nine new teepees, 12 new wagons, three new bath houses, three employee housing buildings, and a laundry facility. This site plan also included the design and layout of five septic systems capable of treating 8,500 gallons of wastewater per day, a new water main and water service connections, and new electric and communication services.
Phase 2 of the project included creating a site plan for 12 tents, an outhouse, a chuck wagon, and a restaurant. This phase also included the design of a drinking water treatment system to treat brackish water from a well on-site and the design of two new septic systems capable of treating 8,500 gallons of wastewater per day. The water system design included water storage, treatment, and distribution system for a new restaurant and 12 new tents. Water from an existing well will be stored in two fiberglass raw water storage tanks before it is treated by the Reverse Osmosis (RO) System. After the RO treatment, the water will be chlorinated and pumped to two finished water storage tanks. When the water is needed, a booster pump system will pressurize the distribution system with the water from the finished water storage tanks. The process water from the RO system will be stored and evaporated in two lagoons. Additionally, because the treatment will include RO, the design of two process water evaporation lagoons was required.
