Carson, California

WestBasinMunUtilDistr_PipingWithHardHatStaff-CROPFor the West Basin Municipal Water District, LUSTER served as prime construction manager for a main pipeline construction program designed to provide 100,000-acre feet of reclaimed water per year to the District’s customers.

The Phase II Expansion Program consists of approximately 17- miles of pipeline, including 50,000-feet of 42-inch water main transmission pipe. Due mostly to schedule constraints, the 42-inch main line was constructed concurrently in three separate bid packages, totaling $22 million. Construction duration was 255 calendar days.
