The Hamilton County WWTA has begun rehabilitating the aging sewage lines in East Ridge.
The rehab project consists of:
· 17,722 linear feet of cured-in-place pipe ranging from 6-inch to 18-inch of gravity sewer pipe
· 1,799 linear feet of pipe bursting ranging from existing 6-inch to 12-inch of gravity sewer pipe
· 669 linear feet of open cut gravity sewer replacement ranging from existing 6-inch to 8-inch gravity sewer pipe
Also included in the project are approximately 225 lateral repairs of various techniques, as well as 16 mainline sewer point repairs ranging from 6-inch to 18-inch gravity sewer pipe.
Manhole work consists of:
· Three vertical feet of 24-inch diameter manhole lining
· 12 vertical feet of 36-inch diameter manhole lining
· 1,473 vertical feet of 48-inch diameter manhole lining
· Seven vertical feet of 66-inch diameter lining
· Assorted bench invert, grout, frame and cover repairs
The scope of the project will include all bypass pumping, pipe and manhole preparation, pre-lining and any necessary tools or equipment required to complete the jobs according to the specifications.
WWTA Board Member Kenny Custer of East Ridge said, “These activities are important for East Ridge’s economy to grow. More importantly, these rehab and repair projects will protect our citizen’s health and environment both now and in the future.”
WWTA Executive Director Mark Harrison said, “East Ridge has significant sewer issues that are being thoughtfully and methodically addressed. We appreciate the public’s patience with us as teams move throughout the area to address community needs.”
