Green International Affiliates, Inc.

Constructed in the 1870s, the Beacon Street Line carries water under the MBTA Green Line tracks in the busy Brookline neighborhood. Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) identified a leak in the 48-in. dia. cast iron pipe below the train tracks and needed to make repairs. SGH evaluated the pipe to determine if workers could safely enter, designed the repair, and provided engineering support during construction.
