Work anticipated in the next three weeks on Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District’s Project Clear in Brentwood:
- Deer Creek Sanitary Tunnel – The contractor is removing some of the aggregate surfacing that was placed at the site at the corner of Brazeau and Suburban Tracks. A crane has been moved to the site, which will be used during construction of the channel and dropshaft that connect the previously installed sewer line to the tunnel. Surveying will be performed in the area this week, with work on the dropshaft beginning later in November.
- Deer Creek Sanitary Tunnel – The contractor has completed installing the fiberglass sewer pipe in the adit tunnel located near Manchester and Breckenridge Industrial. A grout batch plant is being set up at the site to produce the cellular grout used to fill the space between the outside of the pipe and the excavated surface of the tunnel. The grout installation will begin within a week. The contractor continues installing the sheet pile excavation support systems for the Diversion Structure and Metering Manhole at this site. The sheet pile installation will continue in November, then the contractor will begin excavating within the sheet pile support systems to construct the Diversion Structure and the Metering Manhole.
