Description / Significance

Sargent Corporation crews installed 17,000 linear feet of force main and gravity sewer lines as part of the Town of Oxford’s new sewer system.

The project required a major dewatering effort in a 1.2 mile long section of Route 26.  In this area the water table was 4 feet below grade and the sewer pipe was installed 14 feet below grade.  Up to 3 million gallons of water was pumped from the work area each day.

The project also included installation of a pump station consisting of a wet well and a pre-cast valve vault.

The project included:

  • 8,000 linear feet of 12″ sewer
  • 600 linear feet of 10″ sewer
  • 6,000 linear feet of 6″ force main
  • 800 linear feet of 6″ sewer services
  • 600 linear feet of 8″ sewer services
  • 30 4-foot diameter manholes
  • 3 5-foot diameter manholes
