36-inch Waterline

S&B Infrastructure, Ltd. (S&BI) was tasked with designing a 36” waterline for the El Paso Water Utilities Public Service Department.  S&BI identified a deficiency in peak water demand for the Summer of 2005 by analyzing a water model for the EPWU, and determined a 36-inch waterline connecting the Fred Miller Reservoir to the existing 53-inch Canutillo Transmission System was needed.


S&BI developed and evaluated three alignments for the 36-inch waterline to determine the most advantageous alignment that required the least amount of acquisition. The 36-inch pipe was designed to convey 19,080 gallons per minute (GPM) demand on a peak summer day. The line was more than 4,500’ long and included TxDOT permitted for two deep Jack and Bores more than 450’ under State Highway 20 and Interstate 10.


S&BI provided plans, specifications and estimates (PS&E) and a complete set of contract bid and construction documents, including schedule, construction sequencing, traffic control plans, SW3P, general notes, standard and special specifications, special provisions such as liquid damages amounts, and engineer’s final estimate and supporting documents as described in the EPWU’s Procedures Manual.


In addition, S&BI provided Advanced Project Development (APD), Environmental, Public Involvement, PS&E, Bidding and Construction Management, Right-of-Way and Utilities.
