Piney Green Waterline, Onslow County, NC
The Onslow County Water and Sewer Authority hired WK Dickson to design a solution for the relocation of 78,000 linear foot water mains and 1,650 linear feet of cross lines that were in conflict with a NCDOT expansion project. Our solution was to replace the existing parallel mains with a single 24-inch main, and reconnect approximately 60 distribution mains and 257 services along the route. The new water main offers improved hydraulic performance, including additional fire flow. It also reduced the infrastructure and eliminated substandard pipe matter. Services performed by WK Dickson included project management, non-destructive excavations, design, permitting, septic system evaluations, bidding, and construction administration.
