Front Street Water Main Replacement
LOCATION: East St. Louis
CLIENT: Illinois American Water Company
TWM’s water main replacement design services for this large-scale project included the evaluation of multiple options to address an aging 20” water main. Ultimately we recommended the replacement of some portions of the main with larger pipe and pipe lining for other sections. Since the project was being coordinated with an upcoming re-construction of Front Street, engineers worked quickly to design the improvements. The project required substantial coordination with existing railroads, including five different permits, as well as with the Corps of Engineers and Historic Preservation Agency. TWM also prepared a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan.
