Allegany State Park's Red House Area

The recently completed sanitary sewer system rehabilitation project at Allegany State Park’s Red House area in southwestern New York state has helped safeguard the area’s lakes and streams.
When the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP) wanted to prevent inflow and infiltration in a 50-year-old sanitary system that serves campsites and cottages, it looked for a cost-effective, proactive solution. The catch – The system is comprised of more than 125 manholes and 27,000 linear feet of pipe under a natural, pristine 2,800-acre study area.

A subcontractor was engaged to capture video of the entire system to locate any segments where repairs, in addition to pipe relining, would be needed. In addition to checking every inch and every manhole, the system’s seven lift stations were also investigated.

The entire system was then rehabilitated by using cast-in-place lining, which was far more cost effective and far less disruptive to the landscape.

Erdman Anthony recommended solutions, developed cost estimates, created design documents, and compiled the final plans for the documents that NYSOPRHP would use to bid the work.
