Trout Creek Emergency Sewer Encasement and Stabilization Project
Township staff worked with our sewer engineer, Brown & Caldwell, after heavy storms eroded and uncovered two sections of Township sanitary sewer line within Trout Creek near Thomas Road. Exposed sewer lines were threatened from debris and stream flows and required immediate attention. Concrete encasement of the sewer line and rock rip-rap to stabilize the stream bank was designed and installed in two locations. This project required permits from PADEP and several resident easements to access the exposed sanitary sewer lines and stream bypassing. All disturbed areas were seeded and stabilized with straw or matting following completion of construction.
