Litigation Support for a Regional Waterline Project

CA served as a structural engineer expert witness after performing an extensive forensic engineering investigation into determining the possible cause(s) for the premature failure of a 48 inch diameter precast concrete section of a pipeline extending about 28 miles. The pipeline was built to feed raw water from Lake Stillhouse Hollow to Lake Georgetown, Texas. The investigation conducted included a condition survey of failed sections of concrete pipe, the evaluation of construction related documents, quality control sampling and testing of the soil, backfill, and pipe materials, structural analysis of the pipe design, and evaluation of the construction means and methods, among others.
