Macon, Georgia Central City Park Project

Crews in Macon, Georgia recently executed the successful installation of 9,000 linear feet of 54-inch pipe and 2,100 linear feet of 24-inch pipe. The installations are part of a larger 24,000-foot contract with the City of Macon to rehabilitate its wastewater pipelines.

The project started in September 2010 and should be completed in its entirety by September 2011. Jim Newkirk, General Manager for Insituform’s East Region, said, “Insituform was able to successfully design a project where we could meet the Authority’s requirements to schedule certain installations in drier, winter months and complete the Central City Park project before the Cherry Blossom Festival in the Spring.”

Traveling from Texas to implement an over-the-hole wet out process, crews used both traditional water and air inversions for the 54-inch pipe. Four crews were able to install the 54-inch and 24-inch pipe in just six weeks—prior to the start of the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival—one of the Top 20 Events in the South.
