LDA Engineering was awarded a contract to provide professional engineering services to the City of Chattanooga to develop plans and specifications for a sanitary sewer interceptor project in the vicinity of Scenic Warner Park, the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, the Chattanooga Zoo, and Historic Engel Stadium. The project included approximately 2,000 lf of new 36-inch reinforced concrete pipe to improve the existing sanitary sewer interceptor capacity.
Services provided by LDA included meeting with City Parks and Recreation Department representatives, City Zoo officials, University of Tennessee Chattanooga officials, and other consultants to coordinate the interceptor design with other projects in close proximity to the proposed interceptor route. LDA developed plans and contract documents for the project, and prepared sanitary sewer easement documents for the interceptor route. LDA also provided bidding assistance, resident project representative services, and engineering services during construction. The project was funded by State Revolving Loan Funds.
The complexity of the project arose from heavy workplace traffic, historic structures, and crowded city parks on the route of the new interceptor. The project also included a unique tie in to an egg shaped brick conveyance. This connection included a specialized junction constructed adjacent to a high volume thoroughfare. The complexity of the project location and visibility coupled with the high volume of flow and unusual pipe characteristics helped this project to win the KY/TN outstanding overflow abatement award.Back to Projects
