Services included the design for a multi-phased sewer improvement project, including televised inspection and analysis of approximately 196,500 linear feet of pipe. Boswell prepared the contract documents for the replacement of 5,400 linear feet of pipe and lining of approximately 22,000 linear feet of existing sewer. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) was utilized to determine the depth and location of utilities during design to minimize utility conflicts during construction.

Portions of the pipe alignment was in unsuitable soil. Boswell included provisions in the design for testing and disposal of soil in accordance with State regulations. Boswell was responsible for coordination with the utility companies both during design and construction administration.
