LAN to Design Tyler Utility Improvements (Source: Civil + Structural Engineer)
The City of Tyler, Texas, selected civil engineering firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) to design improvements to two of its major sanitary sewer basins. The City of Tyler’s wastewater collection system includes more than 690 miles of sewer mains ranging in sizes from 6-inches to 54-inches in diameter, more than 9,000 manholes, and 24 sewage pump stations (also known as lift stations). Currently, nearly 50 percent of the existing sewer system is over 50 years old.
In April 2017, the city developed and implemented a Capacity, Management, Operation and Maintenance (CMOM) program to perform a comprehensive review and upgrade its wastewater collection system as well as enhance its existing operation and maintenance practices.
