Cockburn Sewer Relief Project: 2,700 mm Trunk Sewer - 2018

KGS Group

KGS Group along with CH2M-Jacobs and the City of Winnipeg designed and commissioned a 2,700 mm diameter trunk sewer that protects the Cockburn West and Southeast Jessie Sewer Districts from basement flooding, and our local river and streams from combined sewage overflows. The Project featured Manitoba’s first implementation of large-diameter microtunnelling technology including a Geotechnical Baseline Report, which mitigates risk issues associated with changes in the defined soil conditions. This unique assignment sets the benchmark for all future tunnelling initiatives both in the City and throughout the Province.
