Aquatech Installs A Successful Temporary Sanitary Force Main Bypass

By -

Reason for Job: Temporarily bypass existing sanitary force main to facilitate sewer realignment, that would allow for a new residential development.

Project Challenges: The existing pump station was roughly a kilometer away, so a method had to be engineered that would provide sufficient storage and sump area to safely and effectively bypass the effluent.

Aquatech’s Solution:
Aquatech engineered and recommended an over sized, above ground manhole. The manhole came equipped with a storage compartment and multiple automated pumps
, creating a temporary pump station for the bypass. The temporary pump station and sewer bypass successfully conveyed the flows and allowed for the new development to commence.
