Tampa's Harbour Island, located near downtown Tampa, Florida, is an affluent area with waterfront access across the street from the city's convention center. When Tampa recently upsized a large force main, it required a unique solution to fix nearly 400 feet of pressurized pipeline running alongside the Seddon Channel. A high water table, waterfront walkways, brick paver sidewalks and adjacent luxury condos made excavation on the island unfeasible, so Fibrwrap Construction was chosen to use its Tyfo® fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) system to rehabilitate the pipeline.
