Pipelines and UtilitiesUtah
On behalf of the public owner and its attorney, provided analysis of material and construction deficiencies that were performed by the construction contractor that replaced a sanitary sewer pipeline in Utah. The contractor was required to design its installation to keep groundwater from intrusion into the pipe after completion of its work, which it failed to do, alleging changed conditions. The owner issued multiple notices of defects to the contractor in a timely manner. The contractor abandoned the project. Work to date has included an expert report and deposition. Testimony not yet scheduled.
