Ardath Area Water Main Replacement Project
Golden State Water Company | 2017
This project was a fast-track design-build contract for Golden State Water Company for 7,500 lineal feet of water main replacement in the City of Gardena. The work included replacing existing 4-inch through 12-inch cast iron mains with 8-inch and 12-inch C-900 PVC water main on Manhattan Beach Boulevard, Redondo Beach Boulevard, and miscellaneous residential areas. The project also included replacing fire hydrants, reconstruction and reconnection of existing service laterals, constructing blow-off assemblies, and air-release valve assemblies.
The main project challenge was the schedule of completion mandated by the City of Gardena which required a 3 1/2-month design and construction period. JIG partnered with Doreck Construction, with both parties committing to the fast-track schedule.
JIG dedicated the manpower and resources to complete the design in one month while concurrently obtaining approval from Los Angeles County Fire Department, Metropolitan Water District, and the City of Gardena. JIG also prepared waiver exemptions and exhibits to Department of Health Services for water to sewer separations.
Management and engineering duties included utility research, preparation of base map using street improvement plans and utility record drawings, and meeting with outside agencies for approvals and permits.
