W.W. Clyde to build water pipeline serving Utah's Duchesne County

Sponsored by


SPRINGVILLE, UTAH, Jan. 16, 2014 -- A $12-million water transportation job serving seven water districts throughout Utah's Duchesne County will soon be underway.

The Victory Pipeline Phase I project was recently awarded to W.W. Clyde & Co., a heavy civil construction firm based in Springville, that will provide both design assistance and construction services for the project slated to start immediately and be completed by the end of 2014.

The Victory project consists of building a new water pipeline from Starvation Reservoir to Roosevelt City, and has been described by the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board as a necessary resource to provide increased capacity for Duchesne County's economic and population growth. Further, the project will directly benefit the populations of Duchesne City, Roosevelt City, Myton City, Johnson Water District, East Duchesne Water District, Neola and other areas of Duchesne County. Ballard in Uintah County also would benefit from the pipeline.

"This pipeline has been designed to fulfill water needs for Duchesne County for at least the next 50 to 75 years," said W.W. Clyde & Co. President Jeff Clyde. "We are excited to get to work on a project that is a necessary improvement for the communities in this region of the state."

Project work has been divided into two phases and includes installation of 29 miles of 30- to 20-inch-diameter high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipeline. Additional work includes excavation and backfill, surface restoration, the Duchesne River crossing, canal crossings, stream crossings, and wetland restoration.

The Victory Pipeline project is a Construction Manager/General Contractor process. As such, the first few months of the project will be dedicated to supporting Duchesne County's design team by identifying and mitigating risk to the project, offering innovative solutions, providing ongoing estimates to help the owner keep the project in budget, and keeping a project schedule for design, construction and owner needs. W.W. Clyde's preconstruction support will reduce cost, improve quality and shorten construction duration.

W.W. Clyde was selected for the job through Statement of Qualifications and Request for Proposals procurement processes. Three other qualified respondents were considered.
