Cooper Pump Solutions provide the support our municipalities need during an emergency sewage pipe repair.
In a ravine in Toronto, a 50-year old Corrugated Steel Sanitary sewage pipe had completely failed as a result of corrosion in the pipe. The pipe collapsed and did not allow flow to exit from a subdivision that included several town house and apartment building complexes. After calls from residents over sewage in their basements, Toronto Water mobilized to the site to investigate. When it was discovered that the pipe had completely failed, the city brought in their emergency repair contractor to devise a repair plan.
Finch Paving was the contractor who was tasked with repairing the failed sewer, while ensuring that the sanitary sewage is conveyed around the work area and not allow further flooding of the homes in the area. Cooper Pump Solutions was called to the site to devise a plan for the sewage bypass, that accounted for the cities strict bypass standards, while allowing access to the area for the reconstruction activities. Cooper Pump Solutions worked with our partners at Cooper Trench Safety and Cooper Equipment Rentals to provide the equipment needed for this emergency repair. The Cooper Pump Solutions team worked hand in hand with the Finch Paving team to set up a system with 100% redundancy to ensure that the system can operate for the next few months. We delivered and installed a system consisting of 2 x BBA BA150E silenced trailer mounted pumps and 2 x BBA BA100K Skid Mounted Pumps. All pumps had the required spill containment and Heavy-Duty Bauer Hoses installed to ensure that the pedestrians and vehicle traffic was not impacted.
The equipment is now operating smoothly, and Toronto Water is very happy with the outcome and equipment solutions provided. They are looking to use us across the city for their emergency response program in the future.
