Cawelo Water District, Conduits D&E and Pump Stations

Bakersfield, California

This major infrastructure project expanded the District’s water recharge and recovery program, and improved its ability to deliver water to agriculture customers. Pipeline facilities installed included 12 miles of 24″ – 60″ concrete, steel and PVC irrigation pipelines and appurtenances, 32 lateral turnout assemblies and three bored street crossings. Three pump stations totaling 5,000HP were constructed to deliver water through the new pipeline system. Canal improvements performed under this contract include a new headworks structure, a section of concrete lined canal, two reservoir inlet structures and a concrete canal check structure. Much of the work was constructed in or adjacent to active orchards and row crops which required close coordination with landowners to minimize impacts to their operations.
