Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary design, the field modifications applied to the final design, and additions made to the dewatering system for a wastewater treatment plant. The site history is described, as are the exploration, design and construction phases of the dewatering operation. The difference between the predicted results and the actual results and lessons learned from experience in the field are discussed. The data includes design parameters for hydrological applications derived from the site soils and the groundwater elevations from one month before the beginning of construction through the construction of the clarifier tank and an additional pump building.

Dewatering of the Construction Site for a 200-foot Diameter Clarifier Tank Founded on Sand and Gravel

This paper presents the preliminary design, the field modifications applied to the final design, and additions made to the dewatering system for a wastewater treatment plant. The site history is described, as are the exploration, design and construction phases of the dewatering operation. The difference between the predicted results and the actual results and lessons learned from experience in the field are discussed. The data includes design parameters for hydrological applications derived from the site soils and the groundwater elevations from one month before the beginning of construction through the construction of the clarifier tank and an additional pump building.
