Civil — Wasa Street Sediment Removal Project

GARDNER, MA — T Ford Company, Inc. (TFCI) was contracted by the Town of Gardner, Massachusetts to perform drainage piping and stormwater treatment units' installation to alleviate strains on the city's outdated drainage collection system and resultant downstream sediment accumulation. Four, Vortechnics Model 11000 precast treatment units were installed to complete the work. Highly plastic clays and peat had to be removed and the subgrade stabilized in order to ensure effective installation of the large, 16' x 10' x 10' treatment units. Twelve to thirty-six inch drainage piping was used to connect the treatment units to a network of catch basins and precast concrete box culverts to successfully and consistently provide a route for the heavy stormwater flows.
