Pumps Redirects Sewer Line Emergency Situation in Albuquerque, New Mexico

0

Griffin was called by TLC Plumbing in April while working on a project in Albuquerque, N.M., to look at a site where a 54-in. sewer line had collapsed. The collapse had resulted in a major intersection in Albuquerque to be closed
and sewage to overflow. TLC had worked to contain the situation, but in order to make the repairs realized, bypass pumping would be required. The sewer line that had collapsed was a reinforced concrete pipe that had been corroded by hydrogen-sulfide. As a result, other areas of the pipe were weakened. Additional potential collapse areas were evident along the line. This made it critical to maintain the flow on the existing pipe because any surges on the line could cause the pipe to collapse. The pumps would be required to pump approximately 7,000 gpm while operating at an 18-ft suction lift with minimal head pressure. The Griffin 18NCRD (18 inch non-clogging pump) was a good fit for the emergency application.
