Plano, Texas embarked on a mission in 2015 to rehabilitate
more than three miles of reinforced concrete pipe (RCP)
after a condition assessment had shown deterioration due to
corrosion from H2S (hydrogen sulfide) sewer gas. The pipeline
is in proximity to the White Rock Creek and Prairie Creek areas
in the Trinity River watershed. Roughly half of the lines also
ran through Gleneagles Country Club, which is considered
one of the top golf courses in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Rehabilitation was necessary to prevent failure of the critical
line segment, especially since failure would require tearing up
the golf course to fix them.
