Reed College Maintenance Hole Rehab
- CATEGORIES Water Resources
- OWNER Portland Bureau of Environmental Services
- LOCATION Portland, OR
Emerio was the prime consultant providing civil engineering services for this maintenance hole rehabilitation project. The maintenance hole, located in a sensitive natural area on the Reed College campus and adjacent to Crystal Springs, had eroded away resulting in water shooting out from the bottom. Several attempts at sealing the holes failed, so the decision was made to plug, line, and abandon the existing hole and replace it with a new hole outside of the natural area. Emerio’s tasks included abandoning the existing hole by filling with CSLM and lining it, designing for temporary sewer bypass, construction of the new hole downstream, and managing the complex permitting process. Construction is complete.
