This project consists of furnishing and installing approximately 11,343 LF of 30” ductile iron force main along Hwy 20 in Decatur, AL. Included in this pipe footage was 2,000 LF of pipeline that had to be installed by means of marine excavation through Decatur’s primary recreational & tourist attraction, Wheeler Lake.
Other areas of work for this project included the installation of 800 LF of 42” steel casing by jack & bore method and the installation of 5 air release vaults, valves and other misc. appurtenances.
This project was completed on time and under budget.
This $14 million contract is a major component of the Baton Rouge Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) Program. The project involves the construction of 16,900 linear feet of gravity sewer and 3,000 linear feet of sewer force main ranging in size from 8” to 42” and 6” to 12”, respectively. In addition to these segments, Eutaw Construction will be required to install over 90 manholes. The project also includes 12 jacked and bored segments for a total of 1,500 linear feet ranging from 24” to 60”. The project will necessitate the need for approximately 67,000 tons of aggregate backfill and bedding.
This project will increase sewer capacities in some of Baton Rouges most heavily populated areas and in neighborhoods that have seen rapid population growth since the early 2000’s.
Eutaw Construction was awarded a $2.59 million contract to improve the sewer system for the City of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The project consists of installing 3,850 linear feet of 30” sanitary gravity sewer main ranging from depths of 15–25 feet deep. The project also has 20 precast manhole structures 5-8 feet in diameter with the deepest structure at 26 feet deep.
The overall project consists of 4 separate smaller projects – W1, W2, S1, S2 – requiring the installation of approximately 250,000 LF of water and sewer force mains. Projects are located in Pearl River County, Mississippi and centered in the municipalities of Picayune and Poplarville. Dungan Engineering is the engineer for this project.
