Morton Street Lift Station Improvements
Fort Wayne, Indiana
The Morton Street Lift Station Improvements project is a mandated upgrade of an undersized and aging combined sewer lift station in Fort Wayne. Very specific constraints were placed on the design of the lift station relating to design and construction timelines, required phasing and extremely stringent performance requirements which tested the physical limitations of the existing site. Wessler structured our team with a project manager with previous experience as a contractor and industry leading design managers who are experts in process and electrical engineering, all who provided an innovative and insightful perspective in carefully planning the phasing and sequencing of construction activities with the required modifications.
The Morton Street Lift Station is a critical element of the City’s combined sewer conveyance network and cannot ever be out of service. This requirement, combined with the extremely small space inside the wet-well and electrical room for new equipment, required innovative solutions that only this deliberately chosen mix of engineering and construction expertise could provide.
