Reducing pollution. Being a catalyst for environmental change, one project at a time.
CLEVELAND, OHIO – A three-and-a-half-year project, we provided services to the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) for the Dugway West Interceptor Relief Sewer Project until September 2017, when the project concluded. This initiative is part of Project Clean Lake, a 25-year program to reduce pollution to Lake Erie and its tributaries.
The Dugway West Interceptor Relief Sewer Project, located on the East side of the City of Cleveland near Bratenahl, OH, redirects the sanitary sewers of several neighborhoods to a new connection to the Easterly Interceptor which, via gravity flow, conveys sewage to the Easterly WWTP for treatment. Provisions are also included to redirect combined sewer overflows (which typically occur during a rain or melt event) to temporary storage via a connection to the future Dugway Storage Tunnel.
The Dugway West Interceptor Relief Sewer Project consists of nearly 13,000 lineal feet of new sanitary sewer (various diameters) and associated flow control structures. Of that 13,000 LF, nearly 3,000 LF of sewer ranging from 24” diameter to 108” diameter was installed by open-cut methods. The other 10,000 LF of sewer ranging from 48” diameter to 72” diameter was installed by Microtunneling. Temporary Support Shafts excavated to depths ranging from 10’ to 50’ was installed for Flow Control Structure installation, and where appropriate also serve as Jacking/Receiving Pits for the microtunneling operation.
