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.

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.

Wet Utility Contractors

Wet utility contractors are involved with many jobs related to subsurface pipeline. In addition to installing new sewer and water pipes and storm drainage systems, contractors also repair or remove pipes; prepare worksites for demolition work; and restore jobsites once pipeline work is completed.

Wet utility contractors also are involved with installation and repair of municipal water treatment systems, steel tanks, and pre-cast pump houses along with updating deteriorating freshwater pipelines.

Water Pipe

There are different types of water pipe material that enable drinking water, fire prevention water and landscape-only water to be available as needed throughout our communities. Pipe that carries potable water, fireline water and recycled water is basically composed of two material types: metal or plastic. These water pipe types must operate under various water pressure conditions to ensure water flows to the appropriate designations.

The type of water pipe materials depends on the nature of the construction project and is usually determined by the designing civil engineer according to specifications required for the city or county where water pipe is to be installed. Water pipeline is commonly installed underground. Depending on the corrosivity of soil conditions, plastic pipe may be more suitable over metal pipe. Then again, metal pipe may also be installed using a protective plastic cover

Sewer Construction

Sewer construction refers to the various procedures involved with installing sewer pipelines. Since sewers transport contaminated waste, the design and installation of pipes must abide by EPA guidelines.

Sewer construction can be associated with most new types of construction projects. Systems and installation procedures will vary depending on whether projects are residential, commercial, or municipal.

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.

Subsurface Utility Engineering

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is a process that has been known to save potentially thousands of dollars in underground pipeline design simply by addressing wet and dry pipeline utility conflicts well in advance of any subsurface utility installation. Subsurface utility engineering is necessary in the design phase when planning, for example, a construction project that requires new or upgraded sewer, water pipeline, or storm drainage systems.

Subsurface utility engineering encompasses many different engineering activities. According to the standard for SUE, developed in 2003 by The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Subsurface Utility Data, Subsurface Utility Engineering is defined as a branch of engineering practice that involves managing certain risks associated with: utility mapping at appropriate quality levels, utility coordination, utility relocation design and coordination, utility condition assessment, communication of utility data to concerned parties, utility relocation cost estimates, implementation of utility accommodation policies, and utility design.

Storm Drainage Systems: How to Recapture Water

Storm Drainage Systems play in an important role when it comes to Best Management Practices (BMP's) that mitigate storm water runoff. We are now in what is considered "wet season" for recapturing rainfall by using various forms of storm drainage systems. The wet season is a time period characterized from October 1st through April 30th, according to construction storm water BMP performance standards.

The more that open land is covered by roads, buildings, parking lots, etc., the less we will be able to recapture rain water naturally, which directly feeds natural underground aquifers. Therefore, several ways have been devised to recapture storm water using various drainage methods, such as those used in pipeline infrastructure; bioswales, retention and detention storm drainage systems, storm water chambers, porous paving, and other storm water capture and reuse systems.

Domestic Water

Domestic water, also called "tap", "drinking" or "potable" water, is for the use inside of your home, office or institution and is intended for general consumption and contact with the body.  This water has gone through a series of procedures to make sure that it is safe for human consumption and and general domestic water use.

Water agencies continually test their water for purification.  Domestic water, as the term is commonly referred to in technical or construction terms, is brought from wells and reservoirs through pipelines to the water agencies and then pumped to your community through local water mains.
