Fixin to wrap up this job this week. Been on it for 3 months. Two 12'' supply lines and one 16" suction line. In the ground is sch. 80 plastic and sch. 40 steel above ground. We ran 148' in the dirt and around 100' of steel in the power plant. Built catwalks to go over pipes. also ran 148' of 3'' make up water line in dirt and about 50 ft of 2'' inside to meter loop and bypass for the cooling tower.

It aint all that bad Redwood. I love running jobs like this. The pipe on the ground was easy, hanging 12" steel in the air in a already crowded ceiling was the tough part. Had three guys working 5 chain falls to make the lifts.

It turned into one hell of a job. We were suppose to bring the plastic up to the wall and turn up there, but after I dug up the world I found their 10" fire main, 8" domestic main, 4" gas main and 260v 3 phase conduit running power to the tower.
