Robins Air Force Base covers 6,935 acres and is Georgia’s largest single-site industrial complex with a huge airfield. It's also home to one of Georgia’s longest runways which is 12,000 lineal feet (LF) in length and 300 feet wide. Base improvements required a new storm sewer system was required. This system was included in a larger design-build project.

The chosen contractor, W.L. Hailey, worked with Earth Tech to develop the site plans and included Smooth Cor™ double wall corrugated steel pipe (CSP) into the design of the storm sewer system. Smooth Cor™, manufactured by Contech Engineered Solutions, is a steel-lined, polymer coated pipe which is ideal for an air force base that required a solution which would provide the necessary hydraulics, environmental and structural strength.

The contractor installed the Smooth Cor storm sewer system which included 8,330 LF of 126-inch diameter, 12 GA. Smooth Cor, and an additional 2,000 LF of 96-inch diameter Smooth Cor with numerous inline fittings. These inline fittings saved the contractor a significant amount of money vs. an alternative concrete option. The system included plain ended pipe with custom foam gaskets and 2’ wide flats bands. All components of this storm drain system, including the rubber gaskets, had to be able to withstand periodic jet fuel spillages.

The system was installed successfully and provided significant savings and time.
