Georgia Utility Awards Sewer Contract

The Walker County Water & Sewerage Authority (WCWSA) has awarded a $297,000 contract to Insituform, an Aegion Company, to combat millions of gallons of stormwater infiltrating its system.

The project involves renewing and extending the life of 11,000 feet of sewer line, utilizing a cured in place pipe (CIPP) system. Once completed, it will extend the life span of the pipe by 50 years.

“This is amazing technology and will only take a few days to complete each section, versus digging up the roads, which would cost over $100 per foot and take months to complete,” stated Shannon Whitfield, WCWSA Board Chairman. “The new WCWSA Board that started in January has some major hurdles to overcome with the large amounts of stormwater infiltration that has been neglected for years. 103 million gallons of stormwater flowed into our sewer system in April. We are moving quickly and making a smart investment using this technology to solve these infiltration problems.”

Brandon Whitley, WCWSA Interim General Manager, will oversee the process, which is expected to only take a few weeks.
