Northwest Pipe Company Wins $69 Million North Texas Municipal Water Contract

Texas Business reports: VANCOUVER, WA— Northwest Pipe Company, a provider of engineered welded steel pipe products, was selected to provide 45,950 feet of 84 inch and 113,600 feet of 96 inch cement mortar lined and polyurethane coated welded steel pipe for three sections of Lake Texoma Outfall to Wylie Water Treatment Plant Raw Water Pipeline Project.

The pipeline will restore North Texas Municipal Water District's raw water supply which has been shut down since zebra mussels were found in Lake Texoma.

The pipeline will transport raw water from Lake Texoma directly to NTMWD's existing Lake Lavon water treatment facility and will ensure NTMWD's member cities have an adequate supply of water.

“We are excited to be part of ensuring water supplies to NTMWD's member cities," said Northwest Pipe Company executive Gary Stokes in a prepared statement. “The Lake Texoma Pipeline is going to have a significant positive impact on residents and provide viable water supplies to the area for years to come.”

The 34,000 ton project will represent approximately $69 million in revenues for the company.

Production will begin in August 2012 and go through the middle of 2013.

“Northwest Pipe Company is delighted to be a participant in this major pipeline delivery system,” said Northwest Pipe chief executive Rich Roman in a statement. “The project is a significant part of our plans for 2012-2013.”
