In 1997, the village of Germantown, WI was developing a new business park on the north side of Germantown and needed sanitary sewer service for the business park as well as for future development to the north. They designed a gravity feed sanitary sewer interceptor system to meet those needs.
The project consisted of underground utility construction of 7,900 linear feet of 30″ sanitary sewer concrete pipe with 21 sanitary manholes at an average depth of 22 feet. It required 3,000 cubic yards of rock excavation and a 417 foot bore under a dual line railroad track 44 feet above. The ground water table was about 4 feet from the ground service, so dewatering was required for the duration of the project.
Wondra Construction won the ABC of Wisconsin Projects of Distinction Award for this project, as well as the S.T.E.P. Gold level safety award in 1998. 8,200 hours were recorded on this project with no OSHA recordable accidents or fatalities on the project work site.
