Pipeline Training

You might be asking yourself, "So how did that pipeline training with Western Water Works and Kana Pipeline Student Apprentices go earlier last month anyway?" July 1st was "Graduation Day" - after two hot, intensive, but fun weeks spent mostly outdoors, at Western Water Works facility in Chino, CA.

Students, including a few from other pipeline construction companies came, joined in and learned the ins and outs of underground pipeline installation - sewer, water pipeline and storm drainage systems, as part of the first ever, "Waterworks 101" pipeline training course.

Fireline

Fireline refers to a type of water pipe system that is used to extinguish fires. Underground pipes attach to fire hydrants or fire suppression systems and deliver pressurized water at an accelerated speed.

Fireline is installed by pipeline contractors. The process is similar to other types of water pipe and entails excavating the land, preparing trenches, laying pipe, and attaching components.

Water Pipe

Water pipe is used to convey drinking water, reclaimed water, and fire suppression water. Without them, communities would not have access to vital services and would be forced to utilize wells and water holding tanks.

Potable water pipe provides people with fresh water for drinking, showering, washing clothes, and other vital tasks. Fireline water pipes are needed to provide fire departments with sufficient water to extinguish fires in residential communities and business parks.

Concrete Storm Drain Structure

A concrete storm drain structure is rather nondescript in appearance, but serves an important duty. The bulk of these structures are primarily hidden underground or protected by embankments. Visible parts include curb inlets and street gutters which are positioned along sidewalks and roadways.

Areas without a concrete storm drain structure are often plagued by flooding any time it rains. Storm drains are designed to pull excess water into the system by means of gravity. City streets and parking lots are built with slight elevation so water will naturally flow into systems.

Water Main Contractors

Water main contractors take care of everything from repairing broken sewer lines to installing water and sewer mains. The majority of water pipes are placed underground, so when pipes burst there can still be substantial amount of flooding that rises above ground.

Due to the complexities of systems, water main contractors must receive adequate training to ensure they remain in compliance with EPA regulations. Additionally, contractors go through OSHA and HAZMAT training and must be licensed prior to installing or repairing water pipeline and mains.

Fireline Contractors

Fireline contractors play an important part when it comes to public safety. This type of pipeline construction involves installing water pipes that connect to fire hydrants and indoor sprinkler systems. It also pertains to carefully inspecting pipes to ensure they are in good working order and free from defects that could reduce water pressure or cause accidental flooding.

Due to the nature of the work, fireline contractors require a significant amount of training before they become licensed. Most states require laborers to work as an apprentice under the tutelage of a licensed contractor.

Subsurface Utility Engineering SUE

Subsurface utility engineering SUE refers to a practice that utilizes different types of tools to identify the location and condition of subsurface pipelines. Acquiring accurate data is essential for helping pipeline companies minimize jobsite dangers and work delays.

The process of subsurface utility engineering SUE was developed in early 90s and was primarily used by the Federal Highway Administration. Today, it is an industry standard utilized for nearly all types of pipeline construction including water pipes, sewer systems, and storm water drainage systems.

Pipeline Construction

Pipeline construction is an integral process that involves pre-construction planning, the actual construction phase, and post-construction. Each phase requires a dedicated team of highly trained employees including engineers, construction workers, general contractors, and project managers.

The planning phase of pipeline construction involves working with engineers to design the system. Multiple decisions must be made to ensure the project will not have negative impacts on the environment or community. The pipeline project planning team will need to acquire permits, secure easement rights, meet local, state, and federal requirements, and obtain project proposals from various pipeline construction companies.

Sewer Contractors

Sewer contractors are charged with the task of installing, repairing, and maintaining sewer pipeline. This field requires special training to comply with Environmental Protection Agency regulations. Improper installation or repair could result in the release of environmental toxins and sewage into communities and rural areas.

Sewer contractors tend to specialize in one specific field, such as residential, commercial, or public works, but might possess experience in all realms. Sewer pipeline contractors have to be licensed and insured and acquire proper permits prior to commencing with work.

Pipeline Construction Companies

We are often asked, what is the difference between wet and dry pipeline construction companies? Pipeline construction companies can basically be separated into two (2) categories: dry and wet utility pipeline construction. Some pipeline companies do one or specific combinations of wet / dry pipeline construction. Dry utility pipeline construction companies install pipelines that are typically non-petroleum based, that do not hold liquid volumes inside the pipes.

In contrast, there are wet utility pipeline construction companies such as those that install sewer, water pipeline and storm drainage systems. These types of utilities carry liquid volume in the pipe, and are therefore called, "wet" utility pipelines for this reason. Next time you are looking for "pipeline construction companies," consider whether you need dry or wet utility pipeline contractors. Note, too, that oftentimes, they may be referred to as "underground" pipeline construction companies.

Water Pipeline

Water pipeline construction is an important component of underground pipeline utility construction. There are three main types of water pipeline systems typically installed in any new public or private construction project: domestic, fire and reclaimed water pipeline. As we all know, water is a precious resource that serves many functions and must meet stringent installation guidelines, and comply with other health and safety code regulations.

Domestic water pipeline is used inside your home, office or institution and is intended for consumption and contact with the body. This water has gone through a series of tests to ensure that it is safe for human consumption. It is also used for dishwashing, clothes washing and toilets on a regular basis. Construction pipeline companies carefully install these domestic water pipeline systems using several testing procedures; i.e. they test for leaks by conducting a pressure test and test for the absence of e-coli and other bacteria. Domestic water is brought from wells and reservoirs through water pipelines to the water agencies and then pumped to your community through local water pipeline mains. Water agencies continually test their water for purification.

Fireline Underground

Fireline is a non-potable water system typically designed for private commercial, industrial, institutional and residential projects with demand for fire protection. A fireline system is different from a potable system in that the water is not circulating. It is only used when needed to fight fire. In a general overview of the various components that make up an underground fireline system, you will notice that they are similar to each other, regardless of the type of market demand.

The private portions of fireline installations are installed using a combination of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and local county, city and/or agency standards. Contractors are usually required to have the correct license(s) to install fireline systems. Underground pipeline contractors install underground fireline pipeline to bring the fireline system into a building or above-ground structure. Respectively, fireline sprinkler contractors generally design and do fireline related pipeline work above ground, inside the building or structure.
