ORTIZ Corporation provided Construction Services for the construction and Management of the Otay Water Districts 30 inch Recycled Water Pipeline Project. The project consists of 29,150FL of 30” CML & C steel cylinder pipe with cement lining and exterior coating. The pipeline was installed in the ROW and environmentally sensitive habitat alignments; a 1,470 FL 30” Horizontal Directional Drill beneath the Otay River, and two Auger Bores totaling 980 LF beneath interstate 5 and MTDB Trolley Tracks.
The project will connect Otay Water District to the City of San Diego South Bay recycled water distribution system. The pipeline will convey the recycled water from the South Bay Water Reclamation Plant on Dairy Mart Road to a new reservoir and pump station facility just South of Olympic Parkway, in the City of Chula Vista. The pipeline will then continue on the pressure side of the pump station and connect to an existing Otay Water Recycled water pipeline along Olympic Parkway in the City of Chula Vista.
In addition to the construction, technical services included construction support or safety, quality control, risk management, contract administration, public affairs for community relations and labor relations, as well as Chief Resident Engineer, Resident Engineer and Inspector services. Close coordination was maintained with the City of San Diego’s Development Services and City of Chula Vista Inspection Department as well as the City of San Diego Metropolitan Wastewater and Water Departments.
The Project earned 2008 Project Achievement Award honors from the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA).
