Northwest Pipe Company has been selected by Sukut Construction and the City of San Diego to manufacture engineered steel pipe for the Pure Water Program Morena Conveyance South and Middle Project.
The Pure Water Pipeline includes 11 different projects that will clean recycled water to produce 30 million gallons per day of purified water, using technology to turn recycled water into safe, high-quality drinking water an reducing the amount of treated water discharged into the ocean.
Northwest Pipe Company is manufacturing more than 4,860 tons of engineered steel pipe with cement mortar lining and a tape wrap coating with a cement mortar overcoat for over six and a half miles of parallel 30 and 48-inch pipelines. Pipe will be manufactured at the Adelanto, California facility and expects to start delivery in the first quarter of next year.
The company recently produced 3,220 tons of steel pressure pipe for the North City Pipeline segment of the PWP.
“We are looking forward to supplying additional pipe on this important project that is taking a sustainable approach to securing clean water for a thriving community,” said Scott Montross, president and CEO of Northwest Pipe Company. “This program will provide nearly half of San Diego’s water supply locally by the end of 2035 and we are pleased to support this community as they look to adopt an environmentally conscious approach to water sourcing.”
Phase one of the project is expected to be completed by 2025.
