Midwest Waterline Design and Construction
WLC Engineering and Surveying was hired by the Anadarko to provide design and permitting of approximately 1.1 miles of new waterline south of Midwest and Edgerton. This was an existing 8” CIP line that serves as the sole domestic water source to the communities of Edgerton and Midwest. Anadarko brought concerns of damage to the existing waterline to the attention of the Salt Creek Joint Power Board (SCJPB), which is comprised of the Towns of Edgerton and Midwest. After discussions with the SCJPB, Anadarko funded the entire project for the SCJPB. It was their desire to utilize the same type of pipe and technology, an epoxy coated, carbon steel line they had been using in the Salt Creek Oil Field for decades for their crude lines. This line then had a HDPE liner pulled through it in the field. A transmission waterline had not been constructed like this in the area before. WLC handled the permitting of this innovative approach and WDEQ approved WLC’s design. The line was permitted and built in the late summer of 2013. WLC handled the coordination with Anadarko, SCJPB, the cathodic protection sub-contractor, and the sub-contractor hired to install the air vacs.
