Vest Water Treatment Plant to Franklin Water Treatment Plant Force Main and Lee S Dukes High Density Polyethylene Pipeline
The Project consists of two scopes of work.
Scope 1: Vest WTP to Franklin WTP Force Main consists of installing over 16,000 linear feet of 16” ductile iron piping force main for residual and backwash transfer between the Vest Water Treatment Plant and the Franklin Water Treatment Plant. Installation of all associated fittings, valves, air release valves, trenching, trenchless crossings, parallel future piping, paving, connections, corrosion control, erosion control, cleaning, testing, and all other associated pipeline work. Installation of two crossings at CSX railroad and NCDOT I-85 Interstate, consisting of parallel 16” ductile iron carrier pipe inside single casing. Reporting on material of service connections along alignment and replacing galvanized steel service lines where discovered.
Scope 2: Lee S Dukes High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Pipeline consists of the installation of 6,000 LF of new 3-inch x 6-inch diameter double wall containment pipe for new chlorine dioxide chemical feed system, including all appurtenances, leak detection system, electrical, testing, and final commissioning. Installation of two (2) new 2-inch diameter HDPE raw water sample lines (approximate length is 6,000 LF for each), including all appurtenances, and testing. Installation of a new raw water sample pump, casing, piping, appurtenances, electrical, and testing at the Raw Water Intake at Blythe Landing. Removal and replacement of various chemical feed lines (11/2-inch and 4-inch diameter) inside existing 8-inch and 12-inch diameter casing pipes. Installation of new fiber optic cable (approximately 6,000 LF) between the Lee S. Dukes WTP and the Raw Water Intake. Installation of new potable water line from Highway 73 to existing Compressor Building, including all appurtenances, and testing.
