City of Graham-Cherry Lane Lift Station & Force Main

AWCK prepared construction drawings, project specifications, bid documents, and construction related services for the Cherry Lane Sewer Lift Station and 18” force main for the City of Graham. The station has a capacity of 1.0 mgd average daily flow and can be expanded to 2.0 mgd in the future. The station wet well is approximately 63 feet in depth. The force main is 7600 LF in length and discharges at the Graham waste water treatment plant. In order to reduce project cost and attract more bidders the project was bid in two contracts. The force main project included a crossing of the Haw River close to Highway 54 and the Lift Station’s depth required extensive rock blasting and is strategically designed to provide sewer treatment to southeastern Graham, southwestern Mebane, and the Alamance Interstate Corridor Development Zone.
