City of Hayward Chooses Ductile Iron Pipe to Replace Aging AC Transmission Main

Christine Michaelidis, Sales Rep for McWane Ductile-Utah recently presented this framed copy of the Fall 2017 feature article from Modern McWane to Bert Weiss, Operations and Maintenance Manager, for the City of Hayward, California.  Mr. Weiss (pictured left) actually wrote the article detailing the City’s efforts to replace an aging 30” AC transmission main with a new 30” ductile iron line supplied by McWane Ductile and sold through Ferguson Waterworks.  Scott Silverthorn (pictured right) with Ferguson was instrumental in coordinating this project between McWane Ductile and the City of Hayward.

Due to the strength and durability of the material, the relative ease in which the pipe could be assembled, and the long term resiliency it will provide in an earthquake prone area, ductile iron pipe was without question the material of choice for the City of Hayward, and we thank Bert for sharing his story with us.
