Clark Shaw Sanitary Trunk Sewer
The key to successful development is the extension of essential utilities such as sanitary sewer. This often requires trunk mains to be constructed at considerable depths and through challenging ground conditions, which was the case with the Clark Shaw Sanitary Trunk Sewer Project. This project consisted of 9,278 LF of primarily 30” and 24” pipe with depths reaching near 50’ deep. Not only was the depth a challenge, a significant amount of the sewer was in solid limestone bedrock. The rock removal was challenging due to the close proximity of existing homes and infrastructure. One 45 ft deep bore pit that required blasting of the rock was within 60 feet of an existing structure. The project also included 3 jack and bore tunnels, of which two were through solid rock. The bedrock also created an opportunity for crushing onsite, with our mobile crusher and screen, to recycle the limestone back into the project as sized aggregate. All of these challenges were successfully accomplished thanks to the collaboration of a carefully assembled team of capable subcontractors, all of whom worked tirelessly throughout the project for a safe and successful result for all interested parties.
