Westport’s Pump Station No. 2 force main replacement project using HDD: A case study

Pump Station No. 2 is a sanitary sewer pump station located in the Town of Westport, Conn., that provides service to 25 percent of the sewer customers on the western side of the town. Westport had experienced several sanitary sewer force main breaks on pipes of similar age and material and decided to proactively replace the Pump Station 2 force main to avoid the catastrophic environmental impacts that would result from a force main break under the Saugatuck River.

In the Fall 2018 edition of NASTT-NE’s Northeast Journal of Trenchless Technology Practices, learn how the Town of Westport, Tighe & Bond, and Haley & Aldrich collaborated to successfully replace the force main using a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) installation method.
