This current City of Rock Hill project will consist of the installation of approximately 1,415 linear feet of eight-inch ductile iron sewer and seven manholes along the center of India Hook Road. Sewer services will be bored under India Hook Road to tie twenty-seven property owners onto new ductile iron mains. Service will be maintained during construction using a bypass pumping operation. India Hook Road is a heavily traveled SCDOT roadway, which requires strategic traffic phasing and control measures during construction. The existing sewer is being replaced due to decomposition and mulitple failed areas of the existing virifited clay pipe, discovered via pipe video.
Some houses along the new sewer alignment have plumbed finished basements. Their finished floor elevations determined the depth of the proposed sewer. Dye testing was performed to determine which houses with plumbed basements were served by the sewer mains and where they tied in. The design phase of this project was on an accelerated schedule so that construction could be completed prior to the end of the City of Rock Hill’s fiscal year. Estimated construction cost: $350,000.
