Bayer Becker’s team provided surveying and engineering services. Butler County Water & Sewer department engaged Bayer Becker’s services as a design consultant for the replacement of an existing 6-inch water main located along Jerry Drive in West Chester Township. Along with replacement of water main along adjacent streets, the design detailed construction of 7,900 linear feet of new 6-inch ductile iron water main to replace an existing 6-inch main that had become prone to failure. The County was in search of a new water main alignment that would not require any additional easements be granted from the residents in the area. In addition, large transmission mains ran directly adjacent to the failing main without shutting down the nearby mains and delivering a finished product compatible with future improvements in the subdivision.
Bayer Becker’s service began with surveying. A base-map was created to detail all pertinent topographic features, existing utilities, property boundaries and easements. Through coordination with the County Engineer’s Office, an alignment was then chosen to satisfy the constraints of the project and detailed construction drawings were created. Once the new main was constructed, service for the residents could be migrated over and the old main was abandoned. Bayer Becker was able to meet the design constraints of the project while limiting the impact to existing roadway improvements.
