Donohue’s Jeremy Roschyk, PE is a presenter at the Collections Systems Specialty Conference on Thursday, October 12 in West Lafayette, Indiana. He is co-presenting with Bill Schalliol from St. Joseph County on “A Sanitary Sewer Saga: New Carlisle Development Area – Sanitary and Water Improvements Project.” This year’s conference will feature several unique and fascinating projects competing for the title of “The Most Interesting Project in the World… That You’ll Probably Never See!” Projects will be presented before a five-person panel representing owners, designers, contractors, suppliers, and operators, using the following criteria to judge each project: Innovation, Value Engineering, Degree of Difficulty/Complexity, Collaboration, and Funding.
Jeremy and Bill’s presentation will touch on several interesting and unique aspects of the project including:
- The project’s 16-year history
- Innovative use of subsurface utility engineering
- Value engineering realized in the midst of unforeseen utility conflicts
- Project complexity with regard to:
- Coordination with three adjacent construction projects
- Designing and execution of a 390-foot jack and bore of a 36-inch sanitary casing in a 40-inch window under two railroads
- Collaboration with three municipalities, two railroads, two regulatory agencies, seven non-municipal utilities, six industries, and four additional consultants/contractors
- Funding sources
