Stiver Engineering provided key design services for the Northeast Transmission Line (NETL) project in Houston. The NETL will transmit 365 million gallons of water a day from the Northeast Water Purification Plant through a 108-inch steel waterline to approximately 900,000 homes in Harris County. Stiver provided a shoring design using soldier piles, wale sets, and steel plate and timber lagging. We also developed a design for a temporary bulkhead to grout fill the annulus of the waterline pipe inside the casing pipe and a cradle design to support the existing 84-inch diameter waterline.
