Melb Water Sewer Pit

The Problem

Major rehabilitation of Hi-volume Melb Metro sewer pit. This Melbourne Water owned asset in the middle of the CBD was suffering from major degradation, water ingress and leakage and required full rehabilitation. The pit was 25ft in diameter and 70ft deep. As the pit was below the water table, effectively the Yarra River was breaching the pit liner and entering under full pressure into the pit. The leaks were rapidly growing worse with potential for catastrophic damage.

The Solution

The Asset Rehab team utilised a special adhesive compound which was able to plug the leaks under full pressure whilst the water was still entering, thus then allowing more substantial permanent repairs to be made. Waterproofing and sealing as well as patching were undertaken.

The Result

Repairs were 100% effective. The rehabilitation and repair works came in on time and on budget, as do all A.R.S jobs. A.R.S carry full insurances and staff are trained in confined space entry.
