Emergency Bypass for Sewer Facility

When operators at the Rivanna Water & Sewer Authority (RWSA) in Charlottesville, Virginia discovered a compromise in the 54-inch secondary effluent water line at their Moores Creek Advanced Water Resource Recovery Facility, they took immediate action to address the problem. The obvious solution was an emergency bypass, but the facility needed a temporary system that wouldn’t harm the creek or shut down the critical access bridge crossing it.

Solution
To get the repair done right and to put their minds at ease, RWSA called their local Xylem branch, the experts on emergency bypass projects. The authority had previously worked with the Xylem team, so they knew they would be in good hands.

“We needed to get it done fast, and we needed to get it done right,” says Tim Castillo, Wastewater Manager at the Moores Creek facility. “The expertise and capabilities that the Xylem team brings to the table is what we needed going in. They are a strong partner and they got it done as designed, and that eased a lot of concerns with our staff.”
