Prior to installation of the Danby liner, the contractor installed 17 VF of 6’ ID liner plate, then began reconstructing the manhole with a double mat of rebar then installed Danby PLIII flat panels 8’ vertical sections. The 8” force main was tied in using a custom fabricated 12” HDPE force main drop. An 8’x8’x18” thick concrete manhole lid was also constructed with the underside having the corrosion resistant Danby PVC liner. This manhole was reconstructed by Boyer, Inc. of Houston, Tx
