Environmental Services plans to start construction in May 2013 to replace about 7,000 feet of deteriorating eight to 18-inch sewer pipe in the Overlook neighborhood. The city installed many of these sewer lines before 1920 (see project map below).
The project includes constructing about 9,000 feet of six-inch sewer lateral pipes that properties will use to connect to the new mainline sewer. The city’s contractor, Emery & Sons Construction, will submit an estimated schedule and work plan to the city. Once the city approves the schedule and plan, Environmental Services will send detailed schedule information to the community.
Arborists will trim street trees and low branches to prepare for the large construction equipment the contractor will use on this project. Trimming will reduce the possibility of large equipment damaging trees and protect the public and construction workers
