Georgia (PRUnderground) September 2nd, 2014
Southern Associates is pleased to announce that it has has recently completed the Paulding County Sheriff’s Training Center Pump Station project. Before installation could be begin, the site had to be excavated to fit the 10′ diameter by 22.5′ deep precast concrete wet well. Once the pit was excavated, a mobile 160 ton crane was used to set the precast 10′ diameter wet well sections.
After the well was installed, the Smith & Loveless packaged pump station was placed on top of the well. Then the electrical conduits were buried and the pump station pad was prepped for the security fence installation and pouring of the 55′x55′ reinforced concrete pad. While the soon-to-be-installed generator was in transit, the security fence and concrete pad were completed. The Generac 150 kW generator was specified with a Class 2 sound proof enclosure because there will be office buildings located close to the pump station.
Southern Associates is pleased to announce that it has has recently completed the Acworth Pump Station force main repair project. The force main had a leak approximately 3.5′ from wet well that needed to be excavated, cut and repaired with a solid 2″ sleeve. Because the breaks in both of the pipes occurred during the ice storm of January 2014, we assume they were caused by water freezing in the pipes, even though this seems unlikely.
After digging down to the root of the problem, we discovered both discharge pipes were broken between the 90 degree elbows and the exit through the side of the wet well. The repairs of both lines were completed by cutting the discharge pipes below the elbows, installing solid 2″ sleeves, and replacing the piping from the below the elbows all the way to the exit at the side of the wet well.
