Woods & Sons Honored for 60 Years of Enhancing Region's Aqueducts
After 60 years of work to upgrade the regional aqueduct system, Vista-based L.H. Woods & Sons, Inc., was honored by the San Diego County Water Authority’s Board of Directors upon completion of the company’s final project for the agency.
On Sept. 27, the Board formally marked the successful conclusion of the $28.6 million Lake Murray to Sweetwater Reservoir pipeline relining project in which Woods reinforced 4.3 miles of large-diameter pipeline to extend its service life by decades. At the same time, the Board adopted a resolution honoring Woods for decades of unequaled service to the region’s 3.3 million residents and its $220 billion economy.
As a certified small business, Woods participated in the Water Authority’s Small Contractor Outreach and Opportunities Program, which is designed to maximize participation by small businesses in the agency’s procurements. In June, the company was purchased by J.F. Shea Co., Inc., one of the largest and oldest privately held construction companies in the nation.
