Waterline Relocation


Local Power Plant

Omaha, Nebraska

The North Omaha OPPD power plant had exposed a secondary 12-inch water main when excavating a drainage ditch in the ash landfill. SIEREX was hired to excavate the area and relocate the pipe five feet lower under the existing ditch. Winter was approaching, and because of the danger of cold temperatures freezing the water main, SIEREX and partner Knutson Plumbing needed to complete the work on a very tight schedule in order to restore secondary water service to the plant.

Scope of Work:

  • Expose and remove existing 12-inch water line
  • Stabilize waterline trench
  • Install new 12-inch ductile iron water line
  • Compact and backfill excavation
