Work has begun on the Route 5 Interceptor Rehabilitation Project in Henrico County Virginia. The work on this project entails the lining of 9,000 feet of 15” to 27” reinforced concrete sanitary sewer with a cured in place liner. The job will also require 10,000 feet of bypass pumping. The design engineer is URS Corp (Tracy Fee) and the project superintendent for Tri-State is Bob Schuster.

Tri-State Utilities has completed the Bainbridge Blvd. Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation project for the Hampton Roads Sanitary District. The project consisted of lining 1,823 feet of 18” sanitary trunk sewer. Tri-State installed a cured in place liner supplied by CIPP Corp. The entire project required by-pass pumping. URS Corp. was the design firm. Bob Schuster from Tri-State was the Superintendent and Craig Welsh the Project Manager.

Fort Lee, Virginia

In November of 2009, Tri-State Utilities completed a comprehensive sewer rehabilitation project at Fort Lee. The base is located in Petersburg, Virginia and is undergoing a sizable expansion. At the same time, the utility assets of Fort Lee have been privatized under the Armies Military Utility Privatization Plan. Through this plan, the sewer system needed to be evaluated and brought up to regulation. This project encompassed, cured in place lining of approximately 60,000 feet of 6” through 30” sewer lines. Tri-State completed the task in seven months.
