AVOIDANCE OF DIRECT BURIAL: WATSON AVENUE LIFT STATION FORCEMAIN CONSTRUCTION WITHIN AN EXISTING INTERCEPTOR SEWER
Abstract:The most recent NPDES permit for the City of Vincennes, Indiana Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) has required that the City eliminate all bypasses of the facility and provide secondary treatment for all flows received. As a result of this requirement, the City through it Utility Services Board has undertaken a significant capital improvements project to address both conveyance and treatment challenges. This paper describes the project approach taken in the redirection of over 70 percent of the collection system flow to a new lift station. While this approach is neither new nor novel, the placement of the new forcemain via sliplining within the existing interceptor that the forcemain replaces is. The construction of this project's forcemain resulted in no additional land requirements, decreased construction costs, and significant minimization of construction impacts to the community by avoiding direct burial of piping around the City's main cemetery and soccer fields. The project resulted in significant cost savings over traditional direct bury.
