  • County Integrates FlexNet To Conserve Capital And Water Resources
    of a typical tower would not meet wildlife requirements CCRWC is realizing the anticipated cost benefits of FlexNet the most significant of which include Conservation of vehicles gasoline and manpower by eliminating reads re reads and service starts and stops It took two man crews in three trucks approximately 12 days to read all meters and return trips to recheck high or questionable readings of meters that could be 30 miles away under the old system Now all meters are read with 100 accuracy in two minutes or less from CCRWC offices Worker s compensation insurance is reduced CCRWC field personnel were the highest indexed employees because of their exposure to accidents injuries and animal attacks By eliminating the need to be onsite to read meters that insurance premium has plummeted Unaccounted for water is virtually eliminated Since CCRWC purchases its water supply from another local water company that draws water from the Mid Middendorf aquifer leaks leave CCRWC holding the bill for lost water Now leaks are generally found within hours and addressed Unauthorized use of water is also found within hours allowing CCRWC to collect from customers who may have previously slid by without being detected We have computers at our home and we can read our meters from anywhere in the USA Gray explains Every day someone is monitoring Utility officials are happy to list the economic benefits of using the FlexNet system and Gray is no different FlexNet stands on its own in cost savings We didn t pick up a single customer or expand our territory we didn t have to he added It is real life stories of how FlexNet impacted the lives of this rural South Carolina community that brings the system s capabilities to the forefront Prior to FlexNet leaks were reported when discovered by high bills or literally finding running water Had that been the case in the uncharacteristically cold January 2009 water leakage would ve ruined one customer s home A water pipe located in the ceiling of a home vacated by an elderly couple ruptured on a Saturday morning When CCRWC s Controller Gale Griggs checked readings that morning the abnormal usage was immediately identified and the water was cut off within a couple of hours Minimal damage occurred If it was the old system it would ve taken someone seeing water running out the door before seeking help The plumber servicing the property credited our system for saving that house from being totally destroyed Griggs said In that same month a major line break in a creek bottom under 6 inches of snow caused CCRWC to hemorrhage approximately 1 000 gallons per minute while about 100 customers had leaks from broken water lines ranging from 100 gallons per hour to 1 800 gallons per hour We were immediately able to isolate the leaks Had we not been able to do that we literally would ve run out of water We were losing water faster than we could keep

  • Constructing A Winding Box Culvert Channel In A Steep Rocky Canyon
    was designing the piping for the open channel section of Logan Canyon There was uncertainty about fitting a precast reinforced concrete box culvert into the existing canal section This section of the canal constructed over 100 years ago was basically carved into the cliffs along canyon At its widest the open canal was approximately 14 feet wide with steep cliffs rising above the canal and sharp drop offs to the state highway below After considerable investigation the project designers decided on precast box culvert to solve part of the problem Oldcastle Precast was contracted to supply approximately 10 000 linear feet of specially designed precast concrete box culvert and precast pipe that was used in the upper portions of the canal project Of this nearly 4 300 feet of precast box culvert was used some 5 x 5 and some 6 x 5 to match the hydraulics of the canal for the Logan Canyon section Designing a box culvert that would fit within the channel without impacting the steep slopes on either side was the challenge To accomplish this designers had to bevel the majority of the box culvert segments so that the box culvert could snake along the alignment without elbows transition vaults or closure pours There were some sections of the canyon where precast was unfeasible due to the impracticality of being able to fit heavy construction equipment into the canal the canal narrowed to eight feet wide with overhanging cliffs in some sections While the cast in place construction was extremely well performed the speed and efficiency of precast box culvert allowed for six times faster construction Some of the cast in place construction slowed to a halt during January of 2013 as the temperatures were too cold to pour concrete for several weeks To manufacture bevels Oldcastle Precast designed and purchased new headers that could bevel or angle one side of the box culvert so that a series of bevels would form a curve up to an eight inch drop in length when measuring opposing sides of the box culvert The joint at the end of each bevel was the same as straight box culvert sections so that there were no extra requirements at the joints To fit the numerous curves in the canal alignment beveled precast box culverts were designed in inch increments with bevels ranging from inch to 8 inches The bevels had to be specifically designed as curve to the left or curve to the right and each piece of box culvert had to be numbered and installed in a series so that the box culvert did not deviate from the alignment After emerging from Logan Canyon the water is transferred from the box culvert to a 66 inch concrete pipeline that heads north Whitaker Construction installed each section so that the inner joint gap measured 1 2 Once the alignment was established the installation progressed rapidly with the contractor averaging over 15 sections per day This was a record rate of installation
