This was the largest sewer pipe bursting replacement project in southern California, and accomplished 32,000 feet of pipe replacement to overcome capacity constraints. Total design and construction value of project was approximately 3.3 million USD. Cost savings to the City was about 50% of the bid for traditional open trench placement, and with fewer traffic impacts.
