North Fork Sewage Pumping Station
Henderson Water Utility
This project was the construction of a new sewage pumping station, associated sewer pipe installation, and construction of a pump storage building/electrical room. The wet well was excavated through silty clay soil and rock to a depth of 40' below the existing ground. There were 750 cubic yards of concrete for the wet well alone, and over 1,000 cubic yards total of cast-in-place concrete on the project. The incoming 30" ductile iron and 18" PVC gravity sewer pipes were installed to a depth of 30', and the four variable-frequency drive controlled submersible raw sewage pumps discharged to a 30" ductile iron force main through a valve pit and flow metering pit. Upon completion of the new pumping station, three offsite locations were tied into new gravity sewers and diverted to this station.
75% of this project was completed by BBI's own forces.

White Oak Lake - Rehabilitation of Lake Dams 1 & 2
Indiana Department of Natural Resources
BBI de-watered Lake No. 1, removed the existing dam to create a wetland, and constructed a new concrete spillway with pedestrian bridge. Lake No. 2 involved extending the embankment, installation of toe drains, and a new spillway culvert.
Oak Grove Road Reconstruction
Under contract with the Indiana Department of Transportation, BBI reconstructed Oak Grove Road from the Warrick County line to 0.10 miles east of Libbert Road. The project, which was just under two miles in length, included over 100,000 cubic yards of total earthwork, lime-stabilized subgrade treatment, numerous pipe structures and box culverts, along with a new 70' span prestressed concrete beam bridge - all of which was self-performed.
