[ARCHIVED] Capital Project: Phase III, Bush Creek Force Main Rehabilitation Project

Slip Lining MapHarford County completed the third and final phase of the Bush Creek Force Main Rehabilitation Project in December, 2017.  


Phase I of the project, upgraded the Bush Creek Pump Station.  Phase II constructed a parallel force main.  Phase III, was the slip lining of 4,300 feet of existing pipe that runs under the Bush River and through neighborhoods on either side of the river.  The project extended the life of the existing force main and provided a redundancy of service for what was a sole source delivery system.
Slip Lining Pipe

What is slip lining?  Slip lining is a process by which a new, slightly smaller pipe is inserted inside an old pipe, avoiding the costs of a complete replacement.  It is one of the oldest methods for trenchless rehabilitation of existing pipelines.  The Bush Creek Rehabilitation Project was the largest and most complex application of the slip lining method ever applied in Harford County.  This cost saving solution for aging infrastructure will safeguard reliable sewer service and the quality of the Chesapeake Bay, now and for the future.
