Union County Annular Space Grouting

Monroe, North Carolina

The Job

This Union County annular space grouting project is located in North Carolina, near Charlotte. Due to a rapidly increasing population, Union County, North Carolina installed a new raw water intake. It required a nearly 11 mile long raw water line to supply a water treatment plant.

The Challenge

There are dozens of road crossings along the alignment. 17 crossings are jack & bore, and require annular space grouting per NCDOT requirements. Given the length of the project, there weren’t any ready mix providers who could cover this entire annular space grouting in North Carolina project.

The Solution

CJGeo has multiple NCDOT approved mix designs, for CJFill-UL. CJGeo sourced material from two different ready mix providers. Each annular space on all crossings was grouted per NCDOT requirements. CJGeo has approved mix designs with the North Carolina Department of Transportation that cover the entire state. From the Outer Banks to Asheville, Raleigh/Durham, Wilmington & Charlotte, CJGeo has you covered.

The density for this work was 30lb/cuft CJFill-Ultra Lightweight. 30lb/cuft CJFill-Ultra Lightweight breaks above NCDOT’s minimum 125psi at 28 day unconfined compressive strength requirement for annular space grout. Because the project volume on this job is relatively low per crossing, CJGeo used ready mix for the raw slurry. Ready mix typically isn’t best for large placements. But for small, spread out placements like this project, is a great fit.
