The Bear Branch Gravity Main, a major collection main for the SJRA Woodlands Division Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) No. 2 service area, was installed in 1985 and requires rehabilitation based on physical condition assessments conducted in previous years. The sanitary sewer gravity main is located along the Bear Branch waterway between Kuykendahl Rd. and WWTF No. 2 in The Woodlands. The gravity main is approximately 16,100 linear feet of existing 42-inch to 72-inch reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) sanitary sewer pipe. A cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) will be inserted into the original pipe to reinforce the structural integrity, prevent further corrosion to the existing pipe and extend the life of the gravity main by 50+ years. This project also includes rehabilitation of manholes, cleaning and television inspection, diversion pumping, installing temporary construction roads along access routes, and installing temporary bridges across drainage ditches, creeks and channels.
