Engineer Mr. David Yaloz at construction site
Israel is known as the land of the Bible, but it is actually much more than that. Israel is a modern, developed country located along the Mediterranean Sea.
Due to the long, hot and dry summers with very short rainy winters, water becomes one of the most important issues in the country. Therefore, as one of the most arid environments on earth, the available water system has to be handled and developed very carefully.
On this basis, the Water Authority approached the engineer Mr. David Yaloz with the task of finding the most suitable piping system to enlarge and replace an existing wastewater system in the town of Ashkelon. The existing pipeline is constructed from a 48” asbestos cement pipe. The new 3.6 km pipeline will replace the existing pipe and a further 3.6 km pipe will be laid after the existing pipe is decommissioned to provide additional capacity and flexibility for this expanding town. The Israeli pipe market offers many different pipe materials i.e concrete, HDPE, PP, steel, and PVC etc. for a sewer pipeline project like this.
