Agua SUD Palmview District
L&G Construction, Inc.
In a collaborative effort to
improve the local sewer services, the City of Palmview, Texas and the Agua
Special Utility District (Agua SUD) worked together to develop and roll out a
plan to enhance both the sewer system as well as the streets above. The project
was a crucial development that would greatly improve services provided to the
The Agua SUD worked diligently to
complete the improved gravity sewer lines as it expanded its coverage area to
provide much needed sewer service to the Palmview community, and progress on
the Palmview Wastewater Collection System enhanced their services to the
surrounding community significantly. The $42 million project by Agua SUD to
bring sewer service to Palmview, included nearly 20,000 LF of
A-2000™ PVC. With
over 100+ years of service life, A-2000 provides proven in-ground durability to
withstand corrosive attacks from both acidic and alkaline soils and is
unaffected by chemicals found in normal sewer. The cost savings provided by
A-2000 were another determining factor in the selection of this durable PVC
pipe manufactured by Contech Engineered Solutions for this project.
55 truckloads were delivered to
the project site. Contech ensured that the line of communication remained
constant guaranteeing the success of the manufacture and delivery of A-2000 in
order to complete the project. The diameters ranged from 18-inch to 36-inch and
were lightweight making it easy to install.
The project contractor, L&G
Construction Inc., was able to install 60 LF of pipe every day at a 20-foot depth
through an open-cut trench. Both the contractor and Agua SUD were extremely
satisfied with the project and ease of installation.
