J. Sanders Construction Company--Vacuum Sewer Project gets magazine cover billing in the Government Engineering Magazine as "Vacuum Sewer Saves York County".
Most citizens don't know or care about the state of their sewer infrastructure unless there is a tax issue involved...Consider York County, VA...Homeowners often had to deal with sewer backups. Untreated wastewater regularly made its way into the creeks and rivers in the area, and from there, into the Chesapeake Bay. The pollution was so bad that it was illegal to harvest shellfish from many of the county's local waterways.
Today, many York County residents are connected to a state-of-the-art vacuum sewer system. There is no longer any stench from on-site sewage disposal systems. Shellfish havesting has returned to some areas again. Property values have increased and more land is available for development. Real estate officials in York County estimate that more than 200 lots that were non-buildable due to sewer issues now have homes on them. All this came as a result of a modern cost-effective sewer construction effort...

EFCO Magazine (July 2005)
J. Sanders Construction Company--Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries (King & Queen Fish Hatchery, Stevenville, VA) Project gets coverage in the EFCO Magazine as "A Whale of a Forming System".
Long time EFCO equipment owner, J. Sanders Construction Company of West Point, Virginia recently completed concrete work on the King & Queen Fish Hatchery in Stevensville, Virginia. Eighteen ponds required a cast-in-place retaining wing wall with a radius kettle for harvesting the fish. EFCO built a two-piece reverse bias special radius form that bolted up to the HAND-E-FORM* set to cast and then quickly cycle this typical configuration. The concrete foundation for the fish holding building was also constructed with HAND-E-FORM panels. The 18 kettles and fish holding building were completed in just seven months. J. Sanders took advantage of former EFCO Field Supervisor, Jimmy Henry's HAND-E-FORM experience placing him as carpenter forman on the project.
