Auburn Ravine Sewer Force Main Project

Project Description

Replacing an aged 12-inch diameter asbestos cement pipe that conveys wastewater from the Auburn Ravine Lift Station to a gravity manhole on the State Route 49 trunk sewer line via Auburn Ravine Road and Marguerite Mine Road. The pipe is proposed to be installed using open trench construction entirely within the existing paved roadway right-of-way. Horizontal directional drilling would be used to cross under two creeks, and open trench excavation with a bypass to cross under a third creek, all which cross Auburn Ravine Road.
