Bush Creek 6.5-Mile Sewer Installation, Frederick County, MD

GTA was hired to perform third party utility inspections for the installation of over six miles of off-site gravity sewer along the Bush Creek River, which included 1.78 acres of emergent wetlands to forested wetland. The proposed sewer line consisted of over a dozen stream crossings and three borings below existing railroad tracks. GTA’s services also included density testing of the utility trench backfill and performing weekly sediment and erosion control inspections in compliance with the Maryland Department of the Environment’s 2011 Standards and Specifications for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control. The new sewer line was activated in February, 2015 and services a number of new communities in the area.
