The VWEA Young Professionals (YP) Committee will be hosting a site visit to HRSD's South Trunk Sewers construction project. This project involves the replacement of three miles of 42" and 48" sewer force main in the Ghent section of Norfolk. Some of the key highlights of the tour include the installation of 54", 60" and 66" casing pipe. The methods of casing pipe installation that are being used are Guided Boring Machine (GBM) and Microtunnel Boring Machine (MTBM). Some of the obstacles that must be tunneled under include St. Pauls Boulevard/Monticello Avenue, Colley Avenue, Hampton Boulevard & Norfolk Southern Railroad. This is a great opportunity to see design in production.
