    CONSTRUCTION BIDS AWARDED FOR MAJOR SEWER LINE REHAB

    Mar 6, 2017 by Chris Wood, Ph.D.

    One of the sewer line rehab projects recently awarded to Crawford Grading and Pipeline, Inc. will entail replacing old clay pipe such as that pictured above.

    Following the February PCWASA Board Meeting, three out of the four proposed construction projects budgeted for FY 2017 were underway.

    In all, the Authority is investing more than $576,000 to repair or replace failing portions of the PCWASA Collection and Conveyance System.

    Upon the recommendations of PCWASA staff and their consultants from Integrated Science and Engineering (ISE), the Authority Board awarded contracts to low bidders on three major sewer line or force main rehabilitation projects.

    The first project, totaling more than $218,000, was awarded to Crawford Grading and Pipeline, Inc. This work entails replacing the aging 8-inch clay pipe and moving that sewer line that runs under the railroad near Paschall and Huddlestson Roads.

    The Authority awarded a second contract for a little more than $358,000 to RDJE, Inc. to repair and replace failing portions of the two force mains servicing PCWASA Pump Stations #2 and #3, while installing gravity sewer lines as well. The work will entail the repair of 12’’, 18”, 24”, and 30-inch pipe.

    Collectively, these projects totaling more than $576,000 are approximately $68,000 under budget.

    UPGRADES TO SYSTEM WITHIN WESTPARK – PEBBLESTUMP

    Jun 8, 2015 by Chris Wood, Ph.D.

    Crews from RDJE, Inc. install a new sewer line to serve customers in the Pebblestump neighborhood.

    The Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority (PCWASA) recently completed rehabilitation of service lines, coupled with a small sewer line extension, within the Westpark area of its system.

    Contractors from RDJE, Inc. were authorized by the Authority to rehabilitate nearly 3,000 linear feet of existing sewer lines via the pipe bursting methodology, while installing approximately 700 linear feet of new pipes, for customers within the Pebblestump neighborhood. The contract awarded by the PCWASA Board of Directors to RDJE, Inc. was the result of the contractor’s low bid of just more than $330,000.

    This infrastructure had been labeled as a high priority hot spot in need of repairs, as a result of data gathered by RedZone Robotics over a two-year period of conditional assessment of the state of all small-diameter pipes and manholes within the PCWASA system.

    “We’ve received nearly a dozen calls from residents in this area over the course of the project, and they all have been positive,” says Stephen Hogan, PCWASA General Manager. “They seem to be pleased with the system upgrades and enhanced service they are receiving.”

    In addition to facilitating the project to rehab and extend these sewer lines within Westpark, the RedZone data also located a total of 19,700 linear feet of sewer lines throughout the system in need of root control. As the Authority was completing the rehab at Pebblestump, contractors also were addressing the identified instances of sewer line obstruction by roots, to restore the integrity of all sewer lines previously impacted by root intrusion.
