12″ Techite Waterline Replacement
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.
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.
