DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS OF GRAVITY SEWER CREEK CROSSING – CASE STUDY OF SEWER CROSSINGS IN MCKINNEY, TEXAS
Abstract:There are numerous techniques to install gravity sewer lines across creeks, channels, rivers and other man-made and natural obstacles. These techniques include the installation of space truss, I-beam, box girder, concrete piers, siphons, and the combination of on grade sewer mains and a lift station. The primary goal of this paper is to provide some technical guidance on the design of inverted siphons and pier supported aerial crossings. Also discussed in the paper is the application of these guidelines in a citywide sewer line creek crossing inspection and rehabilitation program in the City of McKinney, TX.
