Pinellas County Transmission Force Main Inspection and Replacement Program
What could you be doing to stay one step ahead of your existing infrastructure as it approaches the end of its useful life? Joe Graham, JD, MBA, PE with Pinellas County (County) and Weston Haggen, PE with Reiss Engineering are co-presenting on the County’s proactive approach in evaluating their force main system following the failure of a large force main. The suspected cause of failure was corrosion from build-up of hydrogen sulfide resulting in the formation of sulfuric acid leading to corrosion and eventual breakdown of the pipe’s structural characteristics. The County has already conducted a significant amount of evaluations on their large diameter force mains and associated air release valves located in the northern and southern portions of Pinellas County. Based on these evaluations the County has complete a significant amount of ARV replacements and key force main replacements. This presentation will include background on the 30-inch force main failure, inspection and replacements to date, the future of the program, and lessons learned.

The Big Bend Chapter hosts an award banquet each year to present the Thomas P. Smith (TPS) Award to an individual that has been nominated and selected by FWEA committee members. When an individual receives the honor of the FWEA Big Bend Chapter TPS Award, it is to recognize their leadership and mentorship, contribution to advancement of wastewater design, operations, or regulations for the communities in the Florida panhandle, and their willingness to help others.
As part of the event, there is typically a guest speaker who has prepared a presentation of a current event or topic relating to our water environment, as attendees socialize and are served their meals.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their significant other to join us for dinner and the presentation of the TPS award.
