Paxton Creek Interceptor
Paxton Creek Interceptor (PCI) conveys combined sewage from over half the City, Susquehanna, and Lower Paxton Townships to Front Street Pump Station. CRW had PCI inspected while in service in 2013 (RedZone Robotics) and 2016 after heavy cleaning (Terra). The 1902 cast-in-place concrete pipe is severely compromised with visible defects (exposed rebar, cracks, and voids) throughout the 13,500-LF alignment
Rehabilitate the entire interceptor to address defects and structurally reinforce the pipe.
CRW designed and bid for the full restoration in 2017/2018. Upon taking the line out of service with a bypass pumping operation, it was revealed that the line is much more severely damaged than observable in 2013 & 2016 while in service. The rehabilitation work, now much more extensive, has been impacted by the extreme wet weather experienced in 2018, and progress has been limited. CRW terminated the existing contract effective 12/2018. The project will be reevaluated using replacement or the slip lining rehabilitation method.
The project will be financed from 2017 series bonds/cash.
