Village at Bay Ridge

August 30, 2008

Challenge: Install sanitary and storm sewer capacity in high water table site
Solution: Dewatering equipment and persistence

Hot August days and endless sun can keep things pretty dry in Northern Michigan. But our crew at the Village at Bay Ridge had no problems keeping cool with the amount of water they were fighting. Catch basins set at 18 ft. depths caused some interesting work days on the job site. High ground water and extremely wet conditions are a challenge for any crew, but Team Elmer’s was up for the task.

With extensive dewatering equipment, our guys battled the rushing water to set catch basins with surface water in the bottom of the trench box up to 18 inches deep at times. If you like mud pies this was the perfect place for you! More than 4,500 lineal feet of storm, water, and sewer lines were installed for the retirement community situated behind the Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City. Three crews installed the lines, moving approximately 25,000 yards of dirt, with 4,500 ton of gravel will be in place and 2,200 ton of asphalt ready to take vehicle traffic.

Peace of mind is easily achieved for those wanting a firm foundation to build their retirement dreams. Team Elmer’s provides all that and more. You can even recapture some of your youth. Just step outside, mud pies are easy to make, just be sure to be home in time for dinner.
