Force Mains

In addition to conveying wastewater from a pump station to an interceptor or treatment plant at a higher elevation, force mains may also be necessary to cross a drainage divide or when installation for a gravity sewer becomes cost-prohibitive.

WithersRavenel has designed force mains for all of these conditions, and can help clients identify when and where force mains are a suitable choice for their wastewater system. We can navigate the challenges posed by rocky and hilly terrain, wetland and riparian buffers, limited right-of-way, and existing utility conflicts. Where appropriate, we provide clients with support for fast-track sewer system extension application, permitting, funding options, and value engineered solutions.
