Robinson Raw Water Intake

Installation of a new raw water intake located on the Back-Branch of the Ohio River.  The water intake consists of a 24-inch diameter DI pipe, 4-inch diameter DI pipe, two 1-inch diameter HDPE chemical feed lines, Johnson intake screen and Air Backwash system.  The construction of the water intake structure required a 7’x5’x7’ concrete filled trench to anchor the intake pipe and intake structure.  A 24’x11’x3; steel I-beam was installed and anchored into the river bottom to protect the intake screen from any debris impact.  large diameter rip-rap stone was placed at the river bottom for scour protection.
