Water Main Emergency Repair
The city of Anderson contacted the American Structurepoint team when a planned repair of an existing 24-inch asbestos concrete finished water main went awry by punching a hole into the only raw water main to one of Anderson’s two water treatment plants. The routine repair had turned into an emergency repair, and the City needed quick response so that it could still meet water demands throughout their system. Our team sprang into action by diagnosing the problem and leading the around-the-clock repair effort that included City’s staff and multiple contractors. The “repair team” was able to shut down the finished water main and temporarily repair the 24-inch prestressed concrete cylinder pipe raw water main. American Structurepoint and the team continued to assist the City by leading the effort to make final repairs to the raw water main. The total cost of the final PCCP pipe repair was approximately $150,000.
