Lift Station 23 Upgrades
Under a separate contract, yet in tandem with the design and construction of the city’s $165 million Enmarket Arena, Hussey Gay Bell was contracted to design the Lift Station 23 Upgrades & Force Main Replacement project to increase capacity in the project area. The project consisted of the upgrade to the pumping capacity of LS 23 to 2,000 GPM by installing a fourth pump and replacing the existing 20-inch force main with approximately 6,000 LF of 30-inch Fusible PVC installed by Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) at a depth of 100 feet below existing grade in a 36” welded steel casing. The selection of HDD installation provided numerous advantages, including low impact to surrounding areas and expedited construction schedule. This HDD installation saved over 2 years of major disruption to downtown Savannah.
