Watermain design and construction

This project involved design and construction inspection for about 3500M of watermain. It was built with 4m cover for frost protection, and the design included mechanical joint restraints, thrust blocks, air valves and blowdown chambers.

We conducted a transient analysis utilizing the software TRANSAM to confirm design requirements for water hammer. The design pressures required a 750mm ductile iron PC 250 pipe.

The design also included:

  • Mechanical joint restraints
  • Thrust blocks
  • Air valves at high points
  • Blowdown chambers at low points
