Mr. Craig’s experience includes review and monitoring of water and sewer-related construction.
The $4.3M Dewatering Equipment Replacement Project at the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility involved the installation of two Centrisys CS21-4HSC centrifuges, conveyors, rotary lobe pumps, polymer and associated HVAC and air handling systems as well as integration of SCADA programming to monitor the highly-automated installation.
The Main & Brent Street Sewer Replacement Project constructed in 2016 involved an independent review of Contract Change Order requests, to verify compliance with the contract documents.
The Lincoln Drive Waterline Replacement Project constructed in 2009/2010 for the City of Ventura, involved construction observation for the installation of 9300 LF of 8” and 4700 LF of 10” PVC waterlines in a hillside neighborhood. To facilitate completion of the project, Mr. Craig also assisted the Engineering Department in revising the alignment in several locations where unanticipated obstructions were encountered.
The Downtown Water & Sewer Improvement Project constructed in 2007 for the City of Ventura, involved construction observation and coordination of the archaeological and Native American monitors as well as the geotechnical testing agency during the construction of ±4,700 LF of water mains and new HDPE service laterals and construction of ± 2500 LF of 8”/12” sewer mains, 17 sewer manholes and the tie-in of 63 existing service laterals in the downtown business district. The bulk of the work was done at night and construction of both elements of the project were staggered to avoid the potential for contamination. Several “bypass” plans were implemented to avoid impacting local businesses and the bulk of the work was done at night.
The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Sewer & Water Infrastructure Improvement Project (SWIIP) constructed in 2014 involved construction observation of 1,000 LF of 12” water main, installation of a Corten-steel utility crossing bridge that spans Mission Creek; and 600 LF of 8” sewer mains and six sewer manholes.
Mr. Craig also performed construction observation on a prior phase of water infrastructure improvements for the Garden in 2007, which involved the installation 2,600 LF of 8” water main and six fire hydrants.
Construction observation services during several phases of construction in a hillside residential development between 2010 and 2015 for the Carpinteria Valley Water District. The project involves installation of 2- 10” ID HDPE waterlines, pumping/pressure relief stations, two 250 KG water storage tanks, fire and utility services, and construction of a 20 ft. wide concrete roadway through canyon terrain and installation of a 110 LF Corten-steel bridge under stringent Federal, State, CDFW and Local permit conditions.
The Calle Real Waterline Improvement Project which involved construction observation services for the Goleta Water District during the relocation of an existing 8” water main installed in a 16” HDPE casing, which cross under new drainage structure being built in the San Jose Creek, in Goleta.
Mr. Craig’s other experience working with local public utilities involves work on:
The Central Zone Infrastructure Improvement Project for the Carpinteria Valley Water District, constructed in two phases between 2010 and 2011 involved the installation of 12000 LF of 12” PVC water mains installed by Hydraulic Directional Drilling (HDD) under Franklin Creek and open cut methods. The project also involved a jack and bore crossing under Highway 101.
The Linden Ave. & Casitas Pass Rd. Waterline Improvement Projects, providing construction observation services to the Carpinteria Valley Water District during the installation of High Density Polyethylene Plastic (HDPE) waterlines within the bridge structures, which cross Hwy. 101 in Carpinteria.
Prior to this Mr. Craig was a Certified Welding Inspector at L.A. Department of Water & Power’s Valley Generating Station Repowering Project performing welder qualification testing, visual welding inspection, magnetic particle, dye penetrant examinations and NDE coordination on process piping fabrication for a 520 MW combined-cycle power plant.
