Vancouver, Washington -- Northwest Pipe Co. has been selected to provide 45 950 ft (14 500 m) of 84-in (13-cm) and 113 600 ft of 96-in welded steel pipe for three sections of a water-treatment project in Texas.
The pipe maker will supply cement-lined piping coated with polyurethane in a project to join the Lake Texoma outfall to the Wylie water treatment plant, said the company, in a press statement.
This pipeline will restore North Texas Municipal Water District's raw water supply -- which has been shut down since zebra mussels were found in Lake Texoma, the company said. The pipeline will transport raw water from Lake Texoma directly to NTMWD's existing Lake Lavon water-treatment facility and will ensure NTMWD's member cities have an adequate supply of water.
"We are excited to be part of ensuring water supplies to NTMWD's member cities," said Gary Stokes, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Northwest Pipe Co. "The Lake Texoma Pipeline is going to have a significant positive impact on residents and provide viable water supplies to the area for years to come."
The project will represent about $69 million in revenues for Northwest Pipe. Production will begin in August 2012 and go through the middle of 2013.
