The Context

Collecting and conveying water: a simple and economical solution

This major project involves the installation of a storm sewer to service 40 duplexes, 2 8-unit buildings and 15 single family houses. When reviewing the plans and specifications, Marc Legault, Director of Public Works, recommended the use of HDPE products for manholes, catch basins and connecting pipes rather than the concrete that was already specified.

The Solution

Guy Legault, contractor and owner of LGN Horizon, therefore selected the HDPE capture solutions offered by Soleno. This included 33 catch basins of 600 mm (24 in) in diameter and 10 manholes of 1200 mm (48 in) in diameter, as well as several pipes of various diameters, from 250 mm (10 in) to 750 mm (30 in).

6-metre pipes greatly increase the speed of installation
