Known as the flower capital of the world, Encinitas, Calif., is a beautiful little beach town 30 minutes north of downtown San Diego. This sewer bypass manhole project was in the middle of a residential street in this busy community, with significant traffic. Therefore, it was crucial the construction team be in and out of this location as quickly as possible. Low-impact construction is all about designing and completing a project with the least effect on the community. Using precast methods instead of cast-in-place, contractors were able to dig out the existing space, insert the new precast manhole base into the hole, connect it to both ends of the bypass, extend the manhole, backfill the site and complete the project in hours instead of days.
