Lake Huron Clearwell Tank

In September 1999, Dan's Excavating, Inc. (DEI), began work on a new clearwell for the Detroit Water and Sewer Department (DWSD) located in Port Huron, Michigan. With time and money being a factor, DWSD decided a design/build project would best accommodate their needs. Elgen Builders Inc. took on the role as prime contractor. Due to the reputation of DEI completing complex projects ahead of schedule and under budget, along with the excellent repose DEI has with many owners, developers and municipalities, it was no surprise we were recommended to Elgen Builders, Inc. by DWSD for this project.

Along with assisting in the design of this project, Dan's Excavating, Inc. had three primary objectives:

  • Move 200,000 cubic yards of material resulting in an excavation of an area with a diameter of 434 feet and a depth of 36 feet, in a four-week time period.
  • Construct three new junction chambers.
  • Construct an 1,100 foot, 19' x 22' concrete box culvert.

The total contract price for this project is $36,000,000.00.

At DEI, we commit ourselves to excellence, extending from management throughout our crews in the field. This commitment enables Dan's Excavating, Inc. to bring to the table a desire to build a premium project, which is both pleasing to the general public and the owner. These qualities are what set us apart from our competition.
