It is possible to have this weld eliminated, as I did on my 42″ project, if the contractor can get the engineering clearance. I’ve worked 5 large bore waterlines as a rig welder, one 42″ short line I contracted myself, so I have some experience but there are others who cc206 in that niche and can speak more authoritavely than myself.

That pretty much answered my question and my curiosity. If you have D1.

Anyone know the AWWA c code ?

Water work is generally IMHO far less critically challenging, but every application in this trade has its tricks, short cuts and learning curve and I thought I might pass on the few crumbs I’ve gleaned from my limited time in those particular trenches.

Generically speaking, my experience with AWWA is that it doesn’t have a lot of teeth. The best welders on that line welded that joint in a 10 hour day and inspection was stringent. Florida West Coast – Section Colorado – Section Rochester – Section With your drilling rig welding background you should already have everything in place.


It is essentially AWS D1. There are several guys on this forum with such experience who might be looking for work, I’ve heard most of their work is slow untill after the new year so they migh be available. They refered everything to the welding inspector. By yojimbo Date Powered by mwForum 2.

Again not rocket science, but I hate seeing guys re-inventing the wheel. San Francisco – Section As I have recently completed inspection on a storm water pumping station with AWWA listed as the ruling code, I will say I was suprised that the code offered little guidance. I have never seen a xray rig on a water job, but I have yet to work on one. Arizona – Section It also list the welds to be performed with 70xx. That largely depends on length of line and psi- might be something to look into.

North Florida – Section I did initial inspection and follow up inspection after they allowed repairs to parts that didn’t line up with their pumping station.

Puget Sound Olympic – Section By Cactusthewelder Date By rfieldbuilds Date By dbigkahunna Date May want to go over your continuity logs to be sure everyone is current. Looks to me the welding falls under D1.

By Superflux Date It will typically refer aqwa D1. Welding of gasketed joints may require modification to the parameters of this welding standard. The design of field-welded joints is not described.


Not logged in American Welding Society Forum. Welding the inside lap joint on a 36″ line would not be a job I would care to volunteer for, at least not for an extended period of time- it gets a little cramped in there for me. Something to chew over maybe anyway.

Having read postings from you in the past, it appears you tend to focus and specialize more in the gas and energy business than large bore waterlines. It required the voltage module to be installed on my Classic D, which I wasnt going to spend for, so he by passed the code wth charpy testing on my weld test and I was good to go. Nevada – Section If not, you might keep in mind you will need a sufficient sized air mover to keep the smoke clear for the inside welders, at whose expense providing, fueling and keeping that running will be yours to wrangle with the General.

When requested by the purchaser, a full-time welding inspector shall be present whenever there is welding to be done. All the other waterlines I worked required a 1″ unlimited overhead and vertical weld test with backup strip, 4 side bends to D1.

On a 20 mile 42″ line I rig welded on with the 70XX requirements the welding contractor had me qualified with a a full pen 5P, 6″, 6g qualification examined to D1.
