Water/Wastewater Projects
StormFilter, CDS and Corrugated Metal Pipe Meet Sustainability Requirements  Read More

Edie & Lew Wasserman Bldg - UCLA

Edie and Lew Wasserman Building - UCLA Campus
Westwood, California - The new Edie and Lew Wasserman Building was installed on a very dense site on the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) campus and needed to meet sustainability requirements and collect 2,260 CF of runoff from the roof and parking lot. To meet the requirements, a Stormwater Management StormFilter with a 72-inch manhole and an 18-foot deep perforated section, a CDS hydrodynamic separator and 2 barrels of 72-inch, 16 gauge perforated Corrugated Metal Pipe for infiltration were installed on the site.

TRUSS PIPE Replaces Existing Trunk Sewer  Read More

Scott Creek

Scott Creek Trunk Sewer, Phase II
Belmont, Michigan - The existing Scott Creek Trunk Sewer needed to be replaced or rehabilitated because the concrete line had an increasing amount of infiltration and some sags in the pipe. The original US-131 crossing also had significant pipe sag in it causing velocities below design conditions that required it be replaced. Plainfield Charter Township used Gasketed PVC – TRUSS PIPE® for its ability to provide a unique, semi-rigid wall design and unparalleled in-ground performance.

CON/SPAN O-Series Replaces Deteriorating Structure  Read More

3000W Badger Creek

3000W Badger Creek
Tetonia, Idaho - When a bridge along Badger Creek became dilapidated beyond repair, a replacement option with adequate hydraulic capacity was needed to convey seasonal spring runoff without overtopping the road. Selected for its quick installation, a 43’ x 8’-9” CON/SPAN® O-Series Bridge System, 27’ in length, was the best choice for the stream crossing replacement. The bridge system was placed on custom precast footings, further expediting the installation. 

BEBO, MULTI-PLATE AND HEL-COR Installed Along New Roadway  Read More

Quitchupah Creek Road

Quitchupah Creek Road
Sevier County, Utah - In service since 1941, the Sufco Mine is one of the largest producing coal mines in the country. The Quitchupah Creek Road project was initiated to reduce the cost of delivering coal from the mine to nearby power plants. The $32 million project included construction of 11 miles of new roadway, five wildlife crossing structures — three, 10 gage 20’-5” x 13’ MULTI-PLATE® structures (250’ in length), and two twin-leaf precast 36’ x 14’ BEBO® arch systems (160’ in length) — 23,000 square feet of Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) retaining walls, 900 linear feet of twin, 14’ diameter structural steel MULTI-PLATE structures (under 100+ feet of fill) and over 12,000 linear feet of HEL-COR® corrugated steel pipe (CSP) for drainage. Overall, the project reduced the haul distance by 46 miles round trip resulting in significant, long-term time, cost-savings and environmental impact. 

CDS Treats Stormwater at Largest Copper Mine  Read More

Bingham Canyon

Bingham Canyon Mine
Bingham Canyon, Utah - Throughout its history, the Bingham Canyon Mine has produced more copper than any other mine in the world. During an expansion project, a CDS® 5640 hydrodynamic separator was selected to treat stormwater before discharge into an onsite retention pond that allows water to slowly percolate into the soil. The patented system screens, separates and traps debris, sediment and oil from stormwater runoff and is an ideal system to meet trash Total Maximum Daily Load requirements. The system has no moving parts and requires little maintenance.

DuroMaxx Pipe Sliplines Existing Culvert to Increase Structure Life  Read More

Simms Creek

Galerno Road over Simms Creek Reline
Campbell River, British Columbia - While completing repair work along Galerno Road, the City of Campbell River noticed an existing culvert had exceeded its 60+ year service life and was in need of rehabilitation or replacement. The decision was made to extend the life of the culvert by sliplining it with a 120" diameter DuroMaxx® steel reinforced polyethylene pipe. The DuroMaxx pipe provided a lightweight, economical choice that fit easily inside the existing structure, while the smooth interior wall allowed for an enhanced hydraulic performance.

Keystone Compac Wall Result of Strong Business Relationship  Read More

Douglas County Sheriff Sub-Station

Douglas County Sheriff Sub-Station
Highlands Ranch, Colorado - Since the new Douglas County Sub-Station sits atop a hill, surrounded by roads, the site required two large and distinct retaining walls. While both walls used Keystone Compac units, each wall required its own unique construction method and because space was limited on-site, the walls were not able to be built simultaneously. Keystone was selected for its aesthetic appeal and ability to withstand heavy loads. 

DuroMaxx Detention System Stores Stormwater  Read More

Kent County Waste-to-Energy

Kent County Waste-to-Energy
Grand Rapids, Michigan - Covanta Energy is one of the world’s largest owners and operators of infrastructure for the conversion of waste-to-energy. The stormwater at the Grand Rapids location often exceeded the maximum allowable Total Maximum Daily Loads creating a risk to the river. A new stormwater system consisting of a 96 inch diameter DuroMaxx® steel-reinforced polyethylene detention system, providing 22,844 CF of storage, was selected as part of the long-term solution. DuroMaxx was ideal for the site due to its ability to provide the required storage capacity, within a limited space, with long-term durability and significantly low leakage.

Continentals Provide Pedestrians with Safe Passage Over Highway  Read More

Wolf Trap

Wolf Trap over VA-267
Vienna, Virginia - When the neighborhoods and communities surrounding Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts (WTNP) needed a safe way to cross the Dulles Access and Toll Road, they contacted public officials to gain support for the installation of a pedestrian/bicycle bridge. Overall, three Connector® / modified Capstone®-style, Continental® truss bridges were installed in the following sizes and locations: a 16’ x 149’-11” over Eastbound VA-267, a 16’ x 170’-2” over Dulles Access and a 16’ x 138’-7¼” over Westbound VA-267. The Continental structures were selected by FHWA for the ability to be installed at night with little disruption to traffic.

Aluminum Box Culverts Extend Existing Structure  Read More

KY 626

KY 626 Culvert Extension
Morgantown, Kentucky - When scour eroded the ends of a culvert along KY 626, a solution was needed to stop the scour and widen both shoulders along the highway. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet selected two 13’-10” x 5’-5” Aluminum Box Culverts to extend the length of the existing structure. End treatments were added to both extensions in order to protect against future scour.
