STUDY AREA Champlain Park is in consolidated sewer district. • 2,350 Acres • 684 Parcels • 114 Vacant • Estimated Population: 1,420 • (exclusive of Champlain Park)
BASIC INFORMATION • SOILS • Shallow • Poorly Drained and Stony • ROCK • Cumberland Head Shale • Depth Ranges from Outcroppings to over 8 Feet • TOPOGRAPHY • Elevation = 100 at Lake • Rises to Elevation 200 at Center • GROUNDWATER • Relatively High
COLLECTION SYSTEMS • GRAVITY: • Traditional Sloped Pipes & Manholes • Pump Stations will be Required • LOW PRESSURE SEWERS (LPS): • Individual sewage grinder pumps • - Small-Diameter Pressure System
RECOMMENDED COLLECTION SYSTEM LOW PRESSURE SEWERS • Smaller diameter pipe sizes and therefore saves on material and construction costs. • LPS force mains need only be installed below the frost line, thus eliminating the need for deep sewers and manholes. • LPS reduce or eliminate the need of municipal pumping stations. • LPS piping is adaptable to alignment changes necessitated by existing utilities and changes in elevation. • LPS systems receive essentially no infiltration or inflow.
