DDC Journal Highlights Headway Made in the Integrated Pipeline Project
The major water transmission project in North Central Texas features engineered systems supplied by Northwest Pipe Company
The Integrated Pipeline (IPL) project is a joint venture between Tarrant Regional Water District and the City of Dallas, which adds 150 miles of high-capacity pipeline to ensure a reliable source of water for growing communities in the North Central Texas area. Northwest Pipe Company is supporting this project with 108-inch spiralweld steel water transmission pipe manufactured in 50-foot sections at our nearby Saginaw, Texas, facility. The new system conveys water from three East Texas Reservoirs into the Dallas and Fort Worth metro area. Once complete, the project will move 350 million gallons of water per day.
In this DDC Journal article, IPL Program Manager Ed Weaver shares major project milestones, discusses the phased approach to design and construction that has helped make the IPL project a success so far, and the provides insights into the planning process for future phases of the project.
