Pipeline prior to installation.
This project involved diverting water from the New Union Ditch into a new 12-inch diameter PVC pipeline that was installed via horizontal directional drilling. The pipeline tied into an existing storm drain and flowed downstream to the pond.

Deere & Ault provided engineering services for the design of a new vault structure at the ditch turnout, a new measuring flume and vault structure, and approximately 1,200 feet of new pipeline. Trenchless technology was used to minimize traffic disruption to a local park and through the surrounding residential neighborhood during pipe installation.
Deere & Ault performed the hydraulic analysis and prepared the draft, final, and as-built plans for the project.
