Analysis of Freshwater Distribution System at the Long Beach Naval Complex

by M. Michael Anderson, Brown & Caldwell, Pasadena, CA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Forum '86: World Water Issues in Evolution


This account of the evaluation of freshwater pipelines at California's Long Beach Naval Complex discusses current methods for assessing the condition of damaged water lines. Techniques included document review, interviews, visual inspection, potholing, soil resistivity tests, water sampling, dynamic flow tests, pipe sampling, and photography. The analysis determined the physical condition of about 70,000 feet of pipe, enabling investigators to make cost-effective recommendations for rehabilitation or replacement. The report is condensed from the March 1985 Concept Report Brown and Caldwell prepared in regard to a rehabilitation and upgrading program for several utilities at the naval complex.
