Construction Begins on Techite Pipeline Replacement Project in Big Trees Village

Dorrington, CA...As of June 1, 2020, the Calaveras County Water District (CCWD) has begun construction on the replacement of a nearly 8,000-foot section of 14-inch-diameter water transmission pipeline along Meko Drive near Dorrington, in Big Trees Village. The project contract was awarded to K.W. Emerson, Inc., for $1.9 million, which will come from CCWD’s Capital Renovation and Replacement Fund. See the preliminary project schedule here (this is subject to change).






Residents who live in the area will experience detours and traffic control while construction takes place over the next 6 months. Homeowners who live along the pipeline alignment will have trenches cut through their driveways, and some residents will experience water outages that last no more than 8 hours. All driveway trenches will be compacted and repaved before winter.

The pipeline being replaced was built in the 1970s and is constructed of a material called Techite, which is a thin-walled fiberglass composite that is fragile and susceptible to line breaks. When these line breaks do occur, they are very difficult for CCWD field crews to repair, since the fiberglass tends to crack when worked on. Compounding this problem is the way the pipeline was originally installed. Instead of backfilling the trench with sand and base rock, the original contractor backfilled with native soil filled with rocks. Due to the defective material and construction practices at the time, the pipeline has routinely failed, which caused the District to make emergency repairs and issue boil water advisories to up to 150 customers in the area.

The new pipe is a 10-inch ductile iron product that is expected to last at least 75 years. The new stretch will include 80 water services, seven fire hydrants, four air valves, and one pressure reducing station. The pipeline alignment starts near the intersection of Meko Drive and Highway 4 and continues to Blackfoot Circle. About 4,100 linear feet of the new, 10-inch diameter pipeline will be constructed by digging a trench parallel to the existing pipeline. The remaining 2,800 linear feet will be installed by removing and replacing the existing Techite pipeline in the same trench. This section will require temporary, above-ground bypass piping that will be used to maintain continuous water service to customers that are within that portion of pipeline.

Regular construction updates will be posted at www.ccwd.org. For more information, contact the Customer Service Department at (209) 754-3543 or customerservice@ccwd.org.

    So called protesters bringing all the city grief we live here to escape, is a very good promotion for The State of Jefferson. Time to divide from California for those of us who seek to get away from the crazy.

        Bid jobs just need a change order to prolong a job just like Emerson did at the park. All of the extra curves and deep dips were no charge....

BLM in Sonora
Posted on: 2020-06-06 14:34:04   By: Anonymous
 
From MML
"With over a thousand people flooding the park, including protesters and counter-protesters, additional law enforcement from neighboring counties were call in to help keep the peace, as reported here. Sonora City Administrator Mary Rose Rutikanga details the costs, “When you have something of this magnitude…It’s usually done on overtime. So, we’re anticipating anywhere from $10 to $20-thousand of reimbursement expenses from those outside agencies."

They should give the bill to those who want to protest.
Same goes for the 2 knuckleheads in Angels Camp. Those two dips want to bring awareness to us hillbillies, like we're too stupid to know what's going on. Or maybe those two just want people to notice them. Maybe you two should think of a way to make 💰 then donate that money to help, instead of just cost your community money because you wanted attention.

    I really respect and admire the two young women who felt compelled to organize a demonstration against the brutal death of a fellow American citizen.

    They, and their families are far braver than you.

      Agreed.

      Criticize the city of Sonora for going overboard on the police presence.

          Racism can't end until white people recognize that we must speak up too.
