Richland Creek Raw Waterline

Design-Build of Waterline Achieved Ahead of Schedule and Under Budget

As a part of the Paulding County Water System’s development of the Richland Creek Reservoir and potable water treatment facility, Croy partnered to deliver on a design-build of approximately 18,200 linear feet of 48-inch water transmission from the Etowah River in Bartow County to Old Dallas Road in Paulding County, just north of the Richland Creek Reservoir site.

With the increased cost of ductile iron, the project was re-designed utilizing 48-inch diameter steel pipe material. This project required the approval of Paulding County, Bartow County, the City of Cartersville, and the Georgia Department of Transportation for two roadway crossings and NRCS approval of the erosion control plans. The final design included 18,161 linear feet of 48-inch steel pipeline, 19 air and vacuum control valves (ranging in size from 2 inches in diameter to 8 inches), 12 6-inch blow-off assemblies, pipeline cathodic testing system installation along the entire pipe route, and monthly coordination meetings with Paulding County Water System and their program managers.

This project was completed five months ahead of schedule and under the estimated budget.
