To support the construction of a new water treatment plant, Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources had to devise a solution to transfer water to large distribution pipes located 3 miles away. Gresham Smith’s answer involved approximately 16,500 linear feet of 60-inch pipeline that transferred water from the Shoal Creek Water Treatment Plant to two 48-inch distribution mains located on each side of Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.
