Construction Of A Continuous Flight Auger Secant Wall: Chattahoochee Water Treatment Plant, Atlanta, Georgia - Project Details
Organization: Deep Foundations Institute
Jan 1, 2003
The City of Atlanta Water Department required the construction of a two sludge tanks and a wet well at the existing Chattahoochee Water Treatment Plant. Western Summit won a design build contract to build the project and proceeded to evaluate the wet well size options, and construction procedures. The final design required the construction of a 1 million gallon tank. The proximity of the underground tank to adjacent roads and existing plant structures ruled out laying back the excavation. As a result a tied back sheet pile retaining wall was initially proposed.
