Northern Interceptor Sewer Rehab

Scope

Michels utilized ultraviolet light (UV) cured-in-place (CIPP) pipe liners for pipe rehabilitation of 43,984 linear feet of sanitary sewer pipes, making it among the largest UV projects in the United States.

The project’s 130 CIPP installations included:

In addition, Michels rehabilitated 141 utility manholes. The majority of the manholes were along a two-lane highway, however some of the work traveled through neighborhoods, and two main sections went through the jungle.

Although the terrain was not steep or sloped, crews had to be cautious of the surrounding wildlife. Guam has an enormous population of brown tree snakes, while not poisonous they can make one sick if bitten. 

Guam is located in Micronesia in the Western Pacific Ocean and is outside of North America. It is a United States territory located about 9,000 miles away from Michels headquarters. The UV CIPP liner was manufactured in Germany and was shipped directly to Guam in refrigerated sea containers. Demonstrating dedication, the crews lived on the island for nearly the entire length of the project, traveling home about once a month.

The Michels crew in Guam was named Crew of the Year by cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liner manufacturer, Premier-Pipe USA.

Communication and coordination was key to the success to this project, ultimately leading to the project being completed two months ahead of schedule.

  • Michels utilized ultraviolet light (UV) cured-in-place (CIPP) pipe liners to rehabilitate nearly 45,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer pipes and 138 manholes in Guam, making it among the largest UV projects in the United States.
  • The 130 installations included 21,050 feet of 30-inch, 14,528 feet of 36-inch, 5,611 feet of 42-inch, 3,157 feet of 24-inch, and 1,071 feet of 18-inch diameter pipe.
  • Michels continuously monitored and adjusted its schedule to work efficiently with sanitary sewer bypass, right-of-way clearing, traffic control and site restoration contractors.
  • Guam is nearly 7,250 miles away and 15 hours ahead of Michels US Headquarters. The UV CIPP liner was manufactured in Germany and was shipped directly to Guam in refrigerated sea containers. 
  • The Michels crew in Guam was named Crew of the Year by cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liner manufacturer, Premier-Pipe USA.

Michels rehabilitated a deteriorating corrugated metal pipe culvert under a busy roadway. Michels prepared the walls and floor and completed the spray application of 3-inch Millikin Geospray geopolymer mortar to the 128-inch-by-73-inch-by-75-foot culvert. In total, 68,000 pounds of material was mixed and applied.
