The project consisted of approximately 4,900 linear feet of 36 inch to 72-inch diameter sewer pipe installation, a cast-in-place sewer junction structure, manholes and catch basins.
The construction included:
- Cutting, capping and replacing 8-inch water main
- Constructing three Type II supports for the existing 30-inch diameter water main
- Installing 73 new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ramps along with 8” base course, 1-1/2” pavement grinding, 2-1/4” hot-mix asphalt (HMA) Binder Course, and 1-1/2” HMA Surface Course
"The CDWM Sewer Improvement Project was a great chance to get fully involved with the underground aspect of engineering and sewer work/design. From private 6" drain connections to 66" sewer main connections and from catch basins to tumbling basins-- a wide variety of underground work was covered under this project. It was a great opportunity to be able to see the improvement from the existing, overloaded sewer system to the newly implemented system, which will greatly eliminate some of the stress on the old system, as well as please many of the area residents who have been affected by the existing sewer system. On top of that, the restoration of the streets where the new sewer main was placed gives the visual satisfaction of the improved underground work that is left unseen."
