San Francisco Bay in California is a common collection point for many waterways and delta sloughs throughout California’s Central Valley. Located in the East Bay, the San Leandro Channel is one of these primary waterways. In 2017, facing continued pressure on its network, AT&T looked to install fiber optic lines across the San Leandro Channel to expand its infrastructure.
Since this particular crossing for AT&T would be under the San Leandro Channel, it would need to be 50 to 60 feet deep and well below the channel bottom to eliminate the possibility of any drilling fluid making its way into the channel. At this depth and distance, Fusible PVC® conduit, with its larger material tensile capacity, has the ability to handle these types of loads.
