Eugene Water & Electric Board (EWEB) – Willamette River Pipeline Crossing Rehabilitation

On August 17, 2012 Emery & Sons Construction was awarded the Willamette River Pipeline Crossing Rehabilitation Project. The work involved with this project included the installation of 1,000 linear feet of 30-inch diameter welded steel pipe and 500 linear feet of 36-inch diameter welded steel water pipeline fabricated from steel plate to AWWA standards. The 36-inch diameter pipeline is buried at each end of the Randy Pape Beltline Bridge over the Willamette River. The 30-inch diameter pipe will be arranged as twin parallel pipelines, some buried but mostly mounted on two existing bridges that carry the Beltline Road in north Eugene over the Willamette River. The new pipeline was installed to replace an existing under-river 36-inch diameter concrete cylinder pipeline, which was plugged and abandoned as part of the work. The new steel pipeline will be connected at both ends to the portion of the existing concrete cylinder pipeline that will remain in service at the point where the under river portion is disconnected.

City of Junction City – 2013 I&I Reduction Project, Schedules A&B

This project for the City of Junction City required the replacement of approximately 8,500 lineal feet of gravity sewer mainline and service laterals. Sewer mains and laterals were replaced by a combination of pipe bursting and open cut construction. This project also included the replacement of associated manholes and railroad bore crossings where PVC gravity sewer pipes were installed in steel bore casings.

City of Portland – Ash Creek (West of S.W. 57th Ave.) Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project

For several years, the City of Portland worked to stop sewer overflows to South Ash Creek during wet weather. In 2006, the City installed a temporary bypass pipe on the surface near the creek to prevent overflows. Beginning in October, 2013 crews from Emery & Sons repaired portions of the sewer, removed the temporary pipe and installed a permanent sewer line to improve sewer system reliability and stop wet weather overflows to the creek. The work on this project involved the installation of cured-in-place-pipe lining in approximately 1,321 feet of existing 8-inch pipe, 331 feet of 10-inch pipe and 382 feet of 12-inch pipe. Other work included the installation of 359 feet of 15-inch PVC pipe, installation of three new manholes, rehabilitation existing manholes by use of a spray-on liner, and removal of 710 feet of existing bypass pipes.

City of Portland – S.W. Vincent / S.W. Capitol Hwy. Sewer Replacement

Emery & Sons Construction started construction in October, 2013 on a project to replace a cracked and deteriorated 24-inch sewer pipe built in 1929 underneath S.W. Capitol Highway and Terwilliger Blvd. Jack and bore construction was utilized to replace the pipe underneath S.W. Capitol Highway. Emery & Sons excavated a launch shaft in the pedestrian island on the north side of the highway and a receiving shaft on the south side for the jack and bore contractor to bore underneath the highway and install the sewer pipe into place without disturbing the surface. Emery & Sons will also replace a sewer pipe next to S.W. Vincent Place that required the installation of a temporary pipe in Terwilliger Blvd. and the pedestrian trail in George Himes Park to pump sewage around the construction area. Bypass pumping continued for nearly two months, 24-hours a day. Work included construction, maintenance, and removal of temporary work zone traffic control measures, erosion control measures, and temporary flow diversion; Removal of structures & obstructions, clearing & grubbing, and earthwork operations; Construct sewer pipe using open cut and pipe jacking; Construct manholes and inlets; Perform roadside improvements, pavement removal and road surface restoration, including cold planning, aggregate base, HMAC wearing surfaces and concrete curb; Abandon sewer pipe and manholes; roadside development including seeding and planting; 96” caisson installation.

City of Portland – Overlook Sewer Replacement Project

The Overlook Sewer Replacement Project involved the replacement, and rehabilitation of combination sewer, manholes and inlets along 43 streets in North Portland. Due to the densely populated commercial and residential areas, extensive public outreach and planning was required to minimize disturbance to neighborhoods, businesses, and the travelling public.

Construction included a variety of techniques including open cut of 8, 12, 15, and 18” PVC, concrete, and HDPE sanitary sewer and storm drain pipe. Pipe bursting was used to rehabilitee and upsize existing lines. 8”, 12”, 16”, 18” and 21” pilot tube microtunneling installations were performed. There was over 27,000 LF of pipe from 6”-21” pipe that was included under the contract.

Engineered slide rail and shoring systems were used for sanitary sewer installation between 20’- 35’. Extensive bypass pumping was performed during the replacement to maintain service to existing customers.

City of Salem – Mill Creek Reservoir

Emery & Sons is responsible for the construction of a 140-foot diameter 2.3 million gallon partially buried pre-stressed concrete reservoir and an associated 1,900 square foot control building, complete with SCADA system for radio telemetry. The control building houses valves, and flow meters required for the operation of the reservoir as well as a 1,200 gpm duplex booster pump station, miscellaneous instruments, a tablet chlorinator and a recirculation pump for monitoring and boosting chlorine residuals. A seismically activated valve isolation system is also required. General site improvements include the installation of 960 feet of 18-inch ductile iron pipe, the paving of 1,500 linear feet of an existing gravel access roadway, and the installation of 2,700 linear feet of chain link fence as well as earthwork to prepare the site for a second future reservoir of the same size. Over 40,000 CY of excavation is required for this project, and large boulders were encountered during the excavation. Drainage pipe, swales and detention areas were also required to accommodate the new site contours.
