    Slide Rail, Linear Multiple Bay, was used to expose one 108" force sewer main. The goal was to bypass the sewer main with three smaller pipes so that a leak could be repaired. The widest section was 34' x 60' x 12'.

  • 11-28-2018

    The 4' panels are installed next, then the pit will be dug another 4' deeper.

  • 12-14-2018

    Next, prepwork begins on the 108" force main so that it can be tapped and detoured. This will allow for the repairs to be conducted.

    They are down to grade, next up - digging underneath the main sewer line and pouring concrete cradles.

  • 1-29-2019

    The smaller emergency pumps are almost in, then the bypass will be connected.

  • 2-25-2019

    The emergency pumps are installed while preparation continues.

  • 3-5-2019

    Steel road plates were used instead of concrete forms, saving time and money. Heavy plastic was used as a bond breaker.

  • 4-2-2019

    Forming up for one more pour by the two pipe openings. Once that is done the bypass pipes will go in one hole and a shut off valve in the other.

  • 5-7-2019

    The valves that fit to the top of the pipe had to be reformed to fit. They also have to finish pouring concrete around the valve bodies.

  • 6-11-2019

    Almost ready to cut the pipe and install the new valves and bypass.

  • 6-21-2019

    They tapped into the main and this week they will have the pipes hooked up. Next week they will be flowing through the bypass.

  • 7-17-2019

    Soon as they get another valve, they will start to bypass next Tuesday.

  • 8-6-2019

    The bypass is up and running and a section of pipe is cut out. Now they can go up inside to repair the damaged pipe.

  • 12-16-2019

    The system will be in the ground for a few more months.
