12″ Techite Waterline Replacement

Project Description
Replace 11,400-feet of existing 14-inch Techite water line with new 12-inch C900 PVC or ductile iron water main. The replacement line will follow the existing alignment along parts of Sierra Parkway and Meko Drive.

Project Purpose
CCWD has 11,400 feet of 14-inch diameter Techite line in the Ebbetts Pass water system that has experienced catastrophic leaks with pavement failures. Techite was a fiberglass composite material used in the late 70’s and early 80’s that was later found to be defective. CCWD proposed to replace the line as early as 1988.
