Dairy Branch Annular Space Grouting

The Job

Charlotte Water’s Dairy Branch Tributary Sewer project is an approximately $30mm capacity improvement project to address increased density.

The Challenge

As part of the project, a 430LF tunnel ranging from 58″ bore to a 4×4 arch was mined. The carrier pipe was 36″ ductile iron, and required annular space grouting using a mix which wouldn’t float the carrier pipe, and would be able to entirely fill the tunnel at low pressure.

The Solution

CJGeo proposed an NCDOT approved cellular grout mix due to passage through an NCDOT right of way, and then placed the 275CY of grout in a single lift over two hours at approximately 5psi of placement pressure.
