CCL Contracting Inc. was awarded the Fallbrook Public Utility District contract to replace the Via Arroyo Pipeline.
FPUD’s board voted 5-0 Monday, Dec. 4, to award the contract to CCL, which is based in Escondido. The contract is for $2,635,000.
“This is one of the big pipeline projects that we have had,” FPUD senior engineer Aaron Cook said. “It was in the budget. It was planned.”
FPUD staff has created a priority list of replacement projects based on the age of the facilities and past failure incidents. The Via Arroyo Pipeline was selected as a priority due to leaks, age and condition including multiple mainline breaks over the past year. A design package was prepared for the project which includes approximately 4,000 feet of 12-inch and 1,000 feet of 8-inch cement mortar lined and coated steel pipe and associated appurtenances on Via Arroyo and Winterwarm Road.
Five bids were received by the November 16 deadline. CCL had the low bid of $2,635,000. The second-lowest bid amount of $2,930,000 was submitted by TK Construction of San Bernardino. CCL Contracting has previously performed work on FPUD projects to the district’s satisfaction including the replacement of sewer line sections on North Brandon Road and East Alvarado Street.
