This system served six lift stations that handled effluent from a growing commercial district. ESI provided general contracting and construction management responsibilities on the project.

While much of the plumbing, earthmoving, and electrical work were subcontracted, ESI installed system pumps and made piping connections. The project was completed on time and on budget.

Several out-of-scope change orders associated with force main connections that required extensive trenching and pipe laying were promptly executed and completed within one month of the larger project completion date. This project was completed with no OSHA lost work days or reportable accidents.
