Largest Water Pipeline Includes Reinforced Concrete Microtunneling Pipe
Thompson Pipe Group scheduled to manufacture of 6,000 linear feet
The new Atoka Pipeline is the largest water pressure pipeline project in North America. The project includes 60- and 72-inch steel pressure pipe, and 72- and 84-inch reinforced concrete microtunneling casing pipe. The pipeline will transport raw water from Lake Atoka in southeast Oklahoma to Lake Stanley Draper in Oklahoma City. The new pipeline will run parallel to the existing line that was completed in 1962.
The first phase of the project includes two separate microtunnels under the Canadian River near Bing, Oklahoma; each will be approximately 3,000 feet long and up to 110 feet deep. The engineered solution provided by Thompson Pipe Group will protect the steel carrier pipes. Each RCP joint will be 20 feet long and weight more than 58,000 pounds.
Thompson Pipe Group will manufacture the reinforced concrete micro tunneling and steel pressure pipes in Grand Prairie, Texas. The project is scheduled for completion in 2024 and will bring much needed benefits to the Lake Stanley Draper Reservoir.
