walker road sewage solutions
A number of residential properties along Walker Road either had malfunctioning on-site sewage disposal systems or were discharging sewage directly to the harbour. The Municipality consulted KVM for a solution. The very narrow street, high bedrock and small lots were major factors in the selection and design of the solution.
KVM reviewed a number of potential solutions including a large cluster on-site sewage disposal system, conventional gravity sewer, and septic tank effluent pressure (STEP) sewer with individual pump stations.
The STEP system was the most practical and economical solution. KVM completed the detailed design, prepared pretender capital cost estimates, prepared tender documents, coordinated tendering and award, and provided inspection and contract administration support services during construction and warranty.
