TEMPORARY STRUCTURES: ROLE OF THE DESIGN ENGINEER

In 1995, a major improvement to a wastewater treatment plant located on the banks of the Ohio River in Pennsylvania was planned. Flows to this plant could exceed 200 million gallons per day, and proper operation of the plant has a large impact upon the Ohio River ecology and the use of the river as a raw water source for downstream communities. The improvements required deep excavations in very difficult subsurface conditions. Because of the nature of the plant site materials and the critical importance of the plant infrastructure relative to the Ohio River ecology, the civil engineering team retained to create the Capital Improvement Plans made a careful reassessment of the Role of the Design Civil Engineer regarding Temporary Structures.
