Little Calumet River Dewatering

Little Calumet River Dewatering

Scope

Michels Trenchless, Inc. designed a water diversion solution for the Little Calumet River for an anomaly dig. The river serves as a drainage canal for the area and can rise at least 4 inches in water elevation. As little as 1 inch of rain can substantially alter the flow of the river.

All work was performed on the bank of the river which required equipment to be lifted over a retaining wall using a crane. This equipment was then installed in the river. Sheeting was then installed to allow the equipment to remain in place in the event of substantial rain. Three 36-inch flume pipes were designed and utilized to allow for the maximum water flow.

Projects

Michels Dewatering group was tasked to design, install and operate a system to divert peak flows of up to 168,000 gallons per minute, or 242 million gallons per day, so that a pipeline could be open cut in dry conditions across the Conotton Creek.
