BHB provided the rehabilitation design of water and sanitary sewer utilities along approximately 1.2 miles of North Main Street and East Weatherford Street. Water and sanitary sewer utilities in this were undersized and aging. Water line design spanning two pressure planes replaced the existing two-inch lines on both sides of N. Main and an existing line in E. Weatherford with 2,900 feet of 12-inch and 4,600 feet of 8-inch water line. Sanitary sewer design replaced undersized lines along N. Main with 5,400 feet of 12-inch and 850 feet of 8-inch sanitary sewer.

For the design of this utility rehabilitation, BHB engineers had to avoid conflicts with existing utilities such as fiber optic communications, gas, electric, and existing storm drain ranging from 24-inch to 48-inch. Project design included pavement repair design and layout of proposed utilities to minimize pavement replacement. Project staging was also considered in order to maintain utility services to residents and businesses except for temporary shutdowns. BHB’s land surveying team prepared topographic and right-of-way surveys for approximately one mile of N. Main Street from Front Street to Eighth Street for water and wastewater line replacement.
