Pinellas County is located on the Florida Gulf Coast and is one of three counties that surround Tampa Bay. Pinellas County Utilities serves over 700,000 residents in the County and invests heavily in replacing and rehabilitating critical pipelines that are reaching the end of their useful design life. One such project to replace a 1960s era PCCP wastewater force main across the Boca Ciega Bay utilized Fusible PVC® pipe for a 4,000+ foot horizontal directional drill installation. The pipe insertion required 12 intermediate fusion joints and 36 hours to complete.
