Nu-Line Technologies, LLC, has been selected to receive the Fallbrook Public Utility District contract to reline nearly 2,000 linear feet of FPUD sewer main.
FPUD’s board voted 5-0 July 24 to award Nu-Line Technologies, which is based in Vista, a $152,852 contract. The work will perform trenchless restoration of existing mainline to like-new condition on approximately 1,806 linear feet of six-inch gravity sewer main and 960 linear feet of 12-inch gravity sewer main.
FPUD’s capital improvement program includes the strategic replacement of aging infrastructure. FPUD staff believes the segments in the contract can be relined rather than replaced and prepared a bid package. Four proposals were received by the July 11 deadline. The $152,852 bid amount Nu-Line submitted was the lowest with Insituform Technologies, LLC, of Santa Fe Springs submitting the second-lowest bid of $196,840.
Nu-Line Technologies has not previously completed work for FPUD but has successfully relined sewer lines throughout Southern California. “They have significant experience. They’ve done work all over the state,” said FPUD senior engineer Aaron Cook.
