Kirtland Crib Rehabilitation

The Kirtland Crib (also referred to as the 5 mile crib) is a water intake structure that supplies water via a tunnel to the Kirtland Pump station, which services Cleveland, Ohio.

The major components of the renovation included the demolition of the existing building structure and the installation of a new building structure. The sandblasting and painting of the entire structure. Installation of a new steel belt to protect the structure from ice damage. This belt spanned from 6’ above the waterline to 12’ below the waterline and was welded to the structure and filled with concrete. Other items of work included the installation of a solar array to power the crib lights, a new navigation system, new concrete and structural steel.
