NID Testing New Pipe Replacement

Nevada Irrigation district will be testing a new method for replacing pipeline that could save time and money for the district if it works.  The NID Board of Directors on Wednesday (Sept. 25) approved a $127,450 project to upgrade the aging Godwin Siphon near Alta Sierra with a joint-less pipe-in-pipe system that NID has not used before. NID Maintenance Manager Brian Powell says the pipe-in-pipe system is manufactured and installed by Insituform  Technologies,  a St. Louis-based firm that specializes in trench-less pipeline rehabilitation.

Powell says he expects the pilot project to be successful when they do it in November.
