Harry C. Crooker and Sons, Inc. was contracted to construct two new residual handling lagoons to receive backwash wastes from the Jackson Water Treatment Facility. One of the lagoons needed an HDPE Liner to collect and dewater solids from the treatment facility, while the other treats the effluent from the first lagoon for infiltration into the ground water table.
There was also 361 LF of 12” Ductile Iron Pipe, 260LF of 15” Hancor Storm Drain and 210LF of 10” SDR‐35 on the job. The collecting pond had layers of 6” CPE pipe, 4” CPE Pipe along with fabric, stone and cleanouts. The collecting pond also contained an outlet control structure, which was a precast structure with long lead‐time slide gates that acted as weirs.
Challenging work conditions included a month of heavy rain on top of already muddy soil. This made the mass earthwork more difficult, but the crews found ways to make it work.
