The Fallbrook Public Utility District gave PK Mechanical Systems a contract to perform the construction on the Daily-Ross Pipeline replacement project.

FPUD’s board voted 5-0 Dec. 5 to award PK Mechanical the contract for the Wildomar company’s bid amount of $170,000. The project will replace approximately 400 linear feet of 12-inch water main within an area of Ross Road where multiple leaks have been experienced.

“It’s part of our pipeline replacement program specific to the De Luz area,” said FPUD senior engineer Aaron Cook.

FPUD staff prepared a design package and solicited bids. Five companies responded by the Nov. 10 deadline. The PK Mechanical bid was the lowest while Transtar Pipeline, Inc., whose office is in San Diego, bid $237,500 for the second-lowest amount.

In August 2021, the FPUD board awarded PK Mechanical a $1,600,000 contract for the Winter Haven pipeline replacement project which replaced approximately 5,580 linear feet of 12-inch cement mortar lined and coated steel pipe along with associated appurtenances. “PK Mechanical has worked with the district and performed well,” Cook said.
