Project Type: Municipal — Parks — San Jacinto Monument

Location: Houston, TX

Description: The San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site holds a significant responsibility to preserve the proud history of the State of Texas and the United States. The famous Battle of San Jacinto that brought Texas its independence was fought on this site. The Monument’s sanitary sewer system was failing ,waste backups and blockages where occurring with greater frequency. This presented a potential serious health and environmental problem for staff and to hundreds of daily visitors.

THE PROBLEM:

The Monument’s sanitary sewer system was failing, waste backups and blockages where occurring with greater frequency. This presented a potential serious health and environmental problem for staff and to hundreds of daily visitors. What made this problem more challenging is that the monument had to stay open during any repairs to the sanitary sewer system and about 140 feet of the sanitary sewer pipe is encased inside the reinforced concrete base of the monument and the rest is in what is considered hallowed ground.

THE SOLUTION:

Working in conjunction with Baine Medina Baine, TPWLD and Boyer, Inc. TDT Plumbing was able to design, develop and implement a Cured-In-Place Pipe lining strategy that rehabilitated the existing 315 feet of sanitary sewer drain line system without the need to break the reinforced concrete base of the monument or excavate.

THE RESULT:

The project was completed over several weekend nights and more important, visitors and staff were never inconvenienced during the In-Place-Pipe Restoration process. The sanitary sewer system is now functioning better than ever and corrosion tuberculation will no longer be a problem for this system.
