Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – December 10 –
The City of Oklahoma City awarded Garney a $9.1 million contract to construct this waterline, which is being built to assist an old existing 60" concrete steel cylinder line in providing the City with adequate water supply. Interconnects will be built between the two lines to ensure a continuous supply of water in the event of the old 60" line breaking. The new waterline consists of more than 4 miles of 48" piping, six 48" butterfly valves and vaults, and three 36" interconnects into the existing 60" piping system. The project also includes 517 LF of 66" steel casing installed underneath two city roads and I-44. The biggest challenge will be constructing 4,000 LF of 48" ductile iron pipe through the Earlywine Golf Course. This project is a continuation of Phase I, which was a $4.3 million project Garney completed in late 2010. This earlier phase included 10,000 LF of 48" piping and a major creek crossing.
