  • Rehabilitation of Existing Circular & Non-Circular Sewers – Reaching depths exceeding 90 feet, we located and repaired construction joints in all 4 walls of the 6 low-lift discharge flumes of the Northeast Water Treatment Plant.  With precision accuracy, we pressure-injected them with polyurethane grout.  Completed project totaled 3.3k LF of discharge flumes.
  • Design-Build Outfall Rehabilitation – Rehabilitated outfalls within the ageing 80 year-old infrastructure system, so they properly discharged and continued to run over a period of time.
  • Construction Management for Water System Improvements – Replacement of 250k LF of water transmission system spanning across 114 city streets. The work involved ~500 hydrants within an accelerated completion time, to include the restoration of pavements and streets with original landscaping in each of the affected areas.
  • Oakwood CSO Control Facility and Pump Station – LGC constructed a CSO control facility and pump station to prevent environmental issues and properly dispose of waste in larger capacities. The new Control and Odor Building installation included (2) 4.5M gallon capacity CSO Basins, a new waste conduit, state-of-the-art electrical and mechanical systems, internal access roads, yard piping, boundary fencing, gates and restored landscaping – all completed with minimal environmental impact and traffic control changes.

LGC services extended to DWSD’s facilities, offices, 5 water treatment plants, sewage pumping stations, 20 freshwater booster stations, service yards and CSO Basins.
