PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Along the path of Arbuckle Creek and throughout the city limits. The first phase of the project consisted of replacement of eleven culverts totaling 1,252 lineal feet. The new culverts were designed to carry a 50-year flood and alleviate consistent annual flooding along the banks of Arbuckle Creek.

Phase I construction project was completed in 2004. Phase II of the project is currently in the study and funding stage. Thrasher has provided the City of Oak Hill with full service engineering throughout the course of these projects including, but not limited to, preliminary studies and funding applications, mapping, preparation of permits, bid contracts and evaluations, along with construction surveying and inspection and engineering services during construction.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

Oak Hill’s sewer system worked well under normal circumstances, but during heavy rains, storm water crept into the system. Water came from all directions into the city’s collection system and overloaded the wastewater treatment plants. “As ugly as that was, the wastewater and sewer overflows flowed directly, without treatment, into Arbuckle Creek or Loop Creek. It was a severe problem, and it had to be fixed,” says Bill Hannabass, City Manager for the City of Oak Hill. Thrasher designed a solution that dealt with the consequence of the storm water - they suggested and oversaw the building of large tanks at the plants that handled water during big rain events.
