16ft precast manhole

First 16-Foot Manholes Cast For California Customers

admin Stormwater

The new year is already looking large for Jensen Precast. Customers in Southern and Northern California are installing the first ever 16-foot concrete manholes cast at our Lockeford Branch.

To the north in Mountain View, Google’s Bay View project took delivery in January of the first two 16-foot diameter precast structures, outfitted as 14,600 gpm (32-cfs) capacity packaged pump station built by Jensen Water Resources Pump Stations. To the south in Long Beach, City of Signal Hill’s Los Cerritos Channel Sub-Basin Stormwater Capture project will also install two 16-footers, which will deploy a dual Jensen Deflective Separator pretreatment system built by Jensen Water Resources Stormwater Systems.

“Casting manholes this large takes strong collaboration and specialized expertise from our teams,” says Mark Voiselle, General Manager of the Lockeford Branch. “Everyone performed at the highest levels, and we’re pleased to deliver our first 16-foot diameter manholes to contractors who continue to put their trust in our products and services.”

Preston Pipelines of Milpitas, California, is the contractor for the Google project, and Mike Bubalo Construction of Baldwin Park, California, is the contractor for the Signal Hill project at the Long Beach Airport. National Precast Association plans to publish a case study of the Signal Hill project on its website Precast.org during 2018.
