Document Description
The Franklin County Water District (District) proposes sewer line and wastewater treatment plant improvements that will bring the District's aging infrastructure to its permitted State standard and prevent potential unsanitary conditions (Project). Portions of the District's sewer collection system are severely deteriorated and in need of replacement or rehabilitation. The proposed Project area includes other segments of the District's wastewater collection system as a contingency in the event that additional sewer pipe segments are found to be in need of repair. Proposed improvements to the sewer line consist of a combination of spot repairs, the Traditional construction method of dig and replace, and the Trenchless method of cured-inplace pipe (CIPP). Approximately 9,001 linear feet of sewer mains will either be replaced through the Traditional Method or rehabilitated through the Trenchless Construction Method of CIPP. The Traditional Method will replace 4,632 linear feet of sewer mains, while the Trenchless Method of CIPP will rehabilitate 4,369 linear feet of sewer mains.
