This project is a part of the continuation of the overall program for the rehabilitation of the Oakland-Macomb Interceptor Drain (OMID), which consists of the Edison Corridor Interceptor, the Oakland Arm Interceptor, and the Avon Arm Interceptor. The condition of the OMID was evaluated in 2007 using closed circuit television, geotechnical investigations, geophysical analysis, and man-entry inspections. The condition of the sewer has more recently been updated and evaluated based on information obtained from supplemental sewer inspection and robotic work performed in 2010-2011. The OMID rehabilitation program was developed to address immediate and short term rehabilitation of the OMID to mitigate conditions that could lead to failures, including catastrophic failure.
Due to the severity of problems, and other schedule constraints, the design/permitting timeline was challenging. We are proud to announce that the dedication and diligence put forth by AEW team members, combined with the efforts of those in other firms, resulted in a successful and comprehensive design, and procurement of $17 million in principal debt relief, stimulus money. AEW’s post design involvement will continue over the next several years in a Construction Administration, Observation and Surveying capacities.
