Cerrudo Services furnished and installed approximately 1,600 lineal feet of 30 inch diameter steel pipeline across the former Hamilton Army Airfield outboard marsh. The pipe is supported 18 inches above the existing ground with pre-cast concrete block saddle supports and runs 300 feet inside the levee through the tidal marsh to 300 feet off shore into San Pablo Bay.

The pipe is a segment of the dredged fill material pipeline required to transport dredged material to the Hamilton Wetland Restoration Project. The Wetlands project has restored approximately 1,000 acres of former Hamilton Army Airfield to tidal and seasonal wetlands. Dredged material totaling 10.6 million cubic yards has been pumped through the pipeline and placed at the site.
