Somerville HDD Division was contracted to complete a 495m bore under the Amherstburg Channel (Ontario) to install a 200mm ID (273mm OD) DR11 HDPE pipe that would be used as a forcemain sewer for the residential expansion of the Bois Blanc Residences on Boblo Island. This project was another successful collaboration between Somerville's Water / Sewer Division and Somerville's HDD Eastern Division. This project was piloted using an Inrock Canada Gyro Steering tool and rock tooling, through minimal overburden and through bedrock for more than 400m of the total length of the bore. The exit point of the bore was on target and completed with minimal disruption of the surrounding landscape and infrastructure. Final ream size of 18" was completed to ensure a smooth and trouble free pullback of the product pipe and tracer wire.
