This project involved the survey, waterline design, and plan preparation for the replacement of 1070’ of existing 8” waterline with new 10” waterline on Jackson Street from Spruce Street to Buckley Street in Fostoria, Ohio.

Survey work included setting control, performing topographic survey, establishing existing alignments, right-of-way, and property lines, and locating existing utilities. Preliminary engineering involved studying potential routing options to produce the least conflicts. This was particularly challenging since there was a 72” combined sewer, a 45” combined sewer, various small storm sewers, a 4” gas line, and the existing waterline all located within the 60’ right-of-way. A new route for the proposed waterline was required in order to keep the existing line in-service throughout construction. Detail design included multiple vertical deflections to avoid conflicts with other buried utilities, making connections to adjacent waterlines at 4 intersections, and identifying existing service taps to be connected to the new waterline.
