CITY OF KILLEEN, TEXAS

Size: 43,000 LF, 16-Inch to 24-Inch DIP; 22,000 LF 12-Inch to 42-Inch Sanitary Sewer Pipe
Cost: $7M

Scope of Work:
The City of Killeen combined several of its CIP water and sanitary sewer projects into one large project resulting in a $7 million project. This multi-phased project included the Trimmier Creek Interceptor Project and the Diversion Interceptor Project. A major $2-3 million, 9 MGD lift station was also designed, bid, and constructed concurrently.  The design of 2 miles of 24-inch force main incorporated a lining of PROTECTO 401™ Ceramic Epoxy to reduce friction and impede internal corrosion. Peak wet weather measured flows were used to allocate current flows to the Lift Station. Basin maps, other lift stations, several decades of population data mapped into population densities, and long range growth were used to determine the ultimate flows. HYDRA software was used to finalize the design of both interceptors. Total design for this project incorporated two water lines, a force main and several phases of diversion gravity sewer interceptor projects of varying pipe sizes along with the demolition of two smaller wastewater lift stations. For this project, the City of Killeen and TWG were presented the Texas Chapter APWA Project of the Year Award for the $2 - $10 million project division.
