CITY OF RIVER ROUGE, MICHIGAN DWIGHT STREET SEWER REHABILITATION
Abstract:The City of River Rouge, Michigan, owns and operates the Dwight Street combined sewer. The City suspected that the condition of the sewer was poor and sought to rehabilitate the sewer. The rehabilitation needed to be completed under numerous project constraints including; cost, schedule, maintaining traffic, utility conflicts, EPA contract requirements, maintaining sewer conveyance (including hydraulic losses) and impact on the public.
The City and its consulting engineer implemented many project features to meet the project constraints such as contractor prequalification, financial incentives/disincentives for meeting completion dates, public outreach, and performance specifications. A contractor was selected and the work was completed to meet or exceed all of the project objectives.
The rehabilitated sewer was placed in service in August 2004 and has successfully been serving the citizens of River Rouge since.
