LONG POND WATER TREATMENT PLANT IN FALMOUTH, MA

LONG POND WATER TREATMENT PLANT IN FALMOUTH, MA

Installed 2” – 24” HDPE water intake lines for drinking water for the town of Falmouth, MA, with Methuen Construction

Project challenges:

  • Using divers to change out drill tooling in 30’ of water
  • Not having the ability to use any motorized equipment in the water due to the fact that the town was actively using the pond for the existing water supply
  • Having a tight window to install all 4 lines, but still having to keep all lines close enough for the changing water levels
  • Soil conditions consisting of large rocks and flowing sand

Benefit to the client:

The HDD method allowed us to avoiding the traditional open cut method, which would have involved driving sheet pile and dewatering the project in 30’ of water, a 3-4 month process. Using HDD, all 4 lines were installed in 7 days.
