DRAIN REHABILITATION FOR THE CITY OF TAMPA

Ft Brooke Parking Garage

 

THE PROBLEM
Named after the historic Fort Brooke, the original settlement that eventually became Tampa, the Fort Brooke Parking Garage is a 2,523 space structure that services the Tampa City Center, City Hall, Hyatt Hotel and other surrounding businesses. Their 8” cast iron sewer line was accidentally compromised by an out of control directional boring machine and they needed an emergency repair.
 
RESEARCH FOR OTHER OPTIONS
Not wanting to dig up the busy street and disrupt the entrance to their main parking garage to replace this pipe, the City of Tampa turned to Florida Pipe-Lining Solutions. FPS did a CCTV inspection to survey the damage to this 8” sewer line and put together a plan of action.
 
THE FIX FROM FLORIDA PIPE-LINING SOLUTIONS

To have the least impact and disruption to this busy location, FPS began this project at dawn on a Sunday morning. Working with City of Tampa Wastewater Division to maintain safety, FPS Technicians set up and wet out the 70’ of ASTM approved CIPP Liner. An 8” PVC assistance pipe was positioned in the 14’ deep manhole to center the incoming liner and turn it 90 degrees as it was blown into the awaiting host pipe. Once the liner was in place, air pressure maintained full contact with host pipe until it cured.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

Maximum Security Facility with
Major Drainage Issues

 

THE CUSTOMER
Florida Department of Children and Families maintains the North Florida Evaluation and Treatment Center in Gainesville as an evaluation and treatment center for people with mental illnesses who are involved in the criminal justice system. Built in 1976, the NFETC is a maximum security facility with 193 beds open for residents who have major mental disorders.
 
THEIR PROBLEM AND THEIR OPTIONS
The NFETC was experiencing longitudinal cracks in their cast iron horizontal and vertical drain piping, resulting in leaks and sewer gas. Being a maximum security facility, considerable emphasis was placed on security as the DCF looked into their options to repair their failing drain piping.
 
THE FIX FROM FLORIDA PIPE-LINING SOLUTIONS

To have the least impact and disruption to their secure facility, FPS was selected due to their experience, superior lining system, and the security clearance their workers have as an approved Florida School District Contractor. Working with the security and safety guidelines of the DCF, the Technicians set up and lined 2”, 3”, and 4” drain piping in the buildings utilizing the patented and ASTM approved LMK lining system.
