William J. Castle, P.E., F.ASCE, received this on behalf of his team, The Castle Group, for their significant contributions to the North Jersey District Water Supply Commission, specifically for the discharge pipe inspection and repair in Wanaque Project.
North Jersey Water District contacted The Castle Group and relayed information on a significant problem, the district was losing a million gallons of water a day and requested an inspection and repair of the discharge pipe. The Castle Group recognized the water current was too strong to send a diver and recommended an ROV, a remote-operated vehicle for inspection. After tethering the ROV about 150 feet, The Castle Group found the location of the break in the pipe and estimated 8 hours for the repair. As water is becoming an even more precious resource, The Castle Group repaired the pipe in less than 4 hours, saving the North Jersey Water District from losing about 365 million gallons of water per year.
