Cured in Place - City of Plano project
For the City of Plano, AZ&B implemented a Cured in Place project to reduce costs, accelerate the project and reduce environmental impacts. The CIPP allowed the City to continue to use an existing pipeline thereby reducing capital costs and accelerating completion of the project. The 5 mile waste water line, ranging from 21” to 42” will be completed in two phases to accommodate stakeholder needs. By using the CIPP method, the City was able to avoid major environmental impacts along the pipeline route through the City’s nature preserve. This also significantly reduced the amount of US Army Corps of Engineering permitting required for the project.
AZ&B staff has the capability to assist communities manage water resource issues including water supply planning, storm water management design and floodplain mapping and floodplain protection. We focus on developing plans that are sustainable and protect water quality.
