Greenwood, South Carolina - Large Diameter Profile Pipe System

Large Diameter Profile Pipe System Offers Solution for Wilson and Coronaca Creek Trunk Sewer Replacement Project

Greenwood Image 1​(Greenwood, South Carolina) - The Greenwood Metropolitan District (GMD) needed to find the best pipe system for their $46 million wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) expansion and sewer replacement project. GMD chose a large diameter profile pipe system because it was both cost-effective and innovative. The profile pipe system provides an air-tight uniform connection through all joints, including pipe-to-manhole transitions.


Spiral wound HDPE profile pipe was used exclusively for this project. The project included:

  • 2,840' of 72" ID PE gravity sanitary sewer pipe
  • 440' of 60" ID PE gravity sanitary sewer pipe
  • 320' of 48" ID PE gravity sanitary sewer pipe
  • Six PE manholes with 48" risers

All pipes were joined using an integrated electro-fusion bell and spigot technology.
