Project Description

This Riverwater Intake Pumphouse project completed in 2004 in Barton, Alabama is one of Hubbard & Drake’s crown achievements. The project entailed extensive excavation, blasting operations, diving activities, civil construction and mechanical fabrication/installations. The project scope involved the construction of a 40 foot structure below ground level, the placement of “2” 1250 foot lines out into the river channel, trenching and placement of lines to the intake structure, considerable concrete forming and pouring, pipe and fixture preparation and installation. All work was completed only a few feet from the Tennessee River and the project logged no injuries during any phase of the project. The project was completed on schedule and under budget.
