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.
Installation of 18,000 LF of 72″ HOBAS gravity sewer pipe ranging in depth of 22′ to 25′. Trench was dug with Komatsu PC-800 excavator and pulled a 10′ X 26′ Pro-Tec trench box. Volume of excavation was 225,000 CY with 40,000 CY of excess. Project went through eight acres of wetlands requiring Eutaw personnel to be very sensitive to environmental issues that affected the local residents.
