How Rangeline Achieved Success on Greenville North Carolina Airport Runway Project

The project included re-routing a 36” ductile iron water main all while the system and airport remained operational. First, Rangeline completed two 36” by 36” by-pass wet taps, both of which went flawlessly. Coupons were given to the city for further analysis.

From there, the utility contractor both assembled and pressure tested the brand new off-set piping. Once this was completed thoroughly, both wet tap valves were opened and the product was able to follow through existing pipe and the newly-installed by-pass piping.

With both of these lines active, Rangeline was able to install the two – 36’ line stop fittings. These fittings were first tested then wet tapped and line stoppers were mounted into position. When the City and Airport Authority were ready, the Rangeline team inserted the line stops and the water flow was diverted from the existing main to the new offset. The Transfer of product was smooth with no service interruptions.
