I am writing a reference letter for Cleary Construction, Inc., from Tompkinsville, Kentucky. I have had the opportunity to work with Cleary on a welded steel gas main project near Fort Payne, Alabama. The project consisted of approximately 57,000 linear feet of 4″ high pressure steel gas main. Cleary did an excellent job scheduling, planning and completing the work for the project in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend them for future projects.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Worked on several projects in the last 10 years
Cleary Construction, Inc. has work with GRW Engineers, Inc. on several projects in the last 10 years. Those projects have been varied in scope, from large diameter water lines, to gravity sewer collection lines, sewer force mains, pump stations, water line replacement, etc. We have always been very pleased with their work, progress schedule and cleanup at the end.
I was the design engineer and project manager for the “Bledsoe County Correctional Facility Wastewater Infrastructure Improvements” (SBC 142/013-02-2004-18). This project was a State of Tennessee project for the Department of Corrections. The project consisted of the installation of gravity sewers for a new prison complex built adjacent to an existing facility. The gravity lines transported the flow from the new complex and the existing facility to a new wastewater treatment plant (built by others). In addition to the gravity sewer lines (2,745 feet of 8 & 10 inch), a new 180 GPM pump station, mechanical bar screen/structure was constructed at a third site to eliminate an old treatment plant. The new pump station transported the flow through over 8,000 feet of 6- inch force main to the new gravity sewer that they installed. In addition to the 6- inch force main, they installed fiber optics (paralleling the force main and gravity sewer) from the new pump station to the new prison complex for communications at the new WWTP.
The project was awarded in February 9, 2011 for $959,500 and completed on June 8, 2012. At the request of the Owner Cleary installed a temporary pump station at the new complex so that the service lines could be tested. This was done by change order and increased the final project cost to $967,916. There were no other change orders on the project.

Kenvirons and Cleary have a lengthy history of work together…
Kenvirons, Inc., has worked very successfully with Cleary Construction on a varierty of water and wastewater projects over the past several years. These projects have included water distribution lines, booster stations, sewer lines, sewer lift stations, and most recently, the rehabilitation and upgrades to the Russell County Regional WWTP in Jamestown, Kentucky for Contract 1 ($1.686,060.00), and Contract 2 ($615,000.00). Change orders totaling $164,374.00 were added at the Owner’s request for a total contract value with Cleary Construction of $2,465,424.00 for the project.
I personally was the engineer of record and project manager for the wastewater treatment plant rehabilitation and renovations, which included a new headworks facility, structural rehabilitation of aeration basins, replacement of RAS and WAS pumps and valves, electrical and power distribution improvements, a new sludge de-watering press, the addition of surface aerators, upgrading the disinfection system, renovating the disinfection storage building, modification of a number of existing plant pumping and yard piping systems, and replacement of the final clarifier works. Cleary was very good to work with through the course of the project, and did a very nice job with the various project components, and with the additional items requested by the Owner prior to project completion. As with all rehab and renovation projects, there were a few minor glitches and warranty items to be dealth with, but the Cleary folks were responsive and helpful every step of the way.
Kenvirons and Cleary have a lengthy history of work together, and I think I speak for everyone in the company when I say that we look forward to working with Cleary when they are the successful bidders on our projects. If you have any questions, or would like any additional information, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
The Cleary plan saved DWQ both time and construction costs.
Cleary Construction, Inc .. , Tompkinsville, KY (Cleary) has provided construction services to the municipal water and sewer sectors for over 30 years. With respect to the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) and through its Division of Water Quality (DWQ), Cleary most recently completed construction of the East Lake Trunk Sewer – a required project for LFUCG’s federal Consent Decree.
The East Lake Trunk Sewer project posed a number of challenges for DWQ and Cleary including
- A restricted construction corridor
- A construction corridor bounded on one side by one of Lexington’s drinking water reservoirs and on the opposite side by residences
- A narrow greenspace with protected trees
A sensitive wildlife sanctuary along the water’s edge
- Connection of the East Lake Trunk to an existing 48-in sewershed interceptor, just feet from the reservoir, but without the benefit of a connecting manhole
- Bypass pumping requirements requiring that piping go over, under, or around the reservoir
- Construction depths to 20 feet in solid rock
With the construction awarded under the traditional, three-party Design/Bid/Build construction delivery methodology, Cleary could have taken a straightforward approach for construction per the conformed contract documents resulting in change order requests, construction delays, and a citizenry upset with disturbance of a natural habitat deemed theirs. But Cleary initiated an open and collaborative approach with DWQ and its Engineer of Record (EOR) to minimize both construction impacts and construction delays.
- Recognizing potential schedule delays and environmental impacts, Cleary partnered with DWQ and EOR to develop an innovative bypass pumping plan that eliminated the need for bypass pumping over, under or around the reservoir. The Cleary plan saved DWQ both time and construction costs.
- With the specified bypass pump plan modified, Cleary again partnered with DWQ and EOR to develop a plan not previously used by DWQ for connecting large diameter trunk sewers. The change, approved by DWQ and EOR, resulted in savings for both costs and time.
- Impacts to the wildlife and wildlife habitat within the construction corridor were of great concern to area residents and elected officials. With rock removal methodology at the discretion of the contractor but to be approved by both DWQ and EOR, Cleary integrated a combination of digging and trenching that minimized excavation, minimized storage and management of spoil material in the sensitive construction area, and eliminated fracturing of the underground rock strata less than 50 feet from the water impoundment. The result saved DWQ construction dollars and construction time, and protected the integrity of the reservoir.
- Subsequent to completion of the East Lake Trunk, DWQ sought Cleary’s input on construction materials and techniques for another Consent Decree project – one that was not awarded to Cleary based upon low bid. The input proved key in DWQ’s decision-making process.
Cleary has remained responsive to DWQ’s needs and questions and always willing to discuss and expand upon design and technical construction issues when called upon. It is with pleasure that I recommend Cleary Construction, Inc. for professional services related to construction of water and wastewater systems.

Cleary Construction handled the project very professionally
In early 2017, the Glasgow Water Company (GWC) completed phase three of a four-phase interceptor sewer improvement project. This project had various construction challenges due to the fact that much of it went through a densely populated, historic residential neighborhood. Highlights of the construction project are as follows:
- Installation of approximately 14,400 linear feet of 42-inch, 36-inch, and 30-inch gravity sewer,
- three major road bores,
- over 2,100 linear feet of collector sewer installation
- approximately 2,400 linear feet of 16-inch and 12-inch water line relocation.
During the procurement process of the project, Cleary Construction submitted the lowest bid and was awarded the construction contract. The project was originally bid with an 18-month (540 days) construction schedule. However, Cleary proposed a work plan that included a much more aggressive 9-month construction schedule. After a thorough review, GWC approved the work plan with the expedited construction schedule. Once construction began, Cleary Construction had the interceptor sewer installed, tested and in service in five months; the water line relocation was completed three months later. Apart from final cleanup, the project was completed in only 8 months.
Cleary Construction handled the project very professionally and was responsive to the concerns of the GWC as well as those of local residents. Due to their professionalism, quality of work, and ability to tackle such a large project with such effectiveness, the GWC would highly recommend Cleary Construction for future projects.
