Richmond-South Tabor Project

Button. Click to sign up for email updatesEnvironmental Services is designing a project in the Richmond and South Tabor neighborhoods, plus a few blocks in Creston-Kenilworth, to repair or replace about 10,300 feet, or 2 miles, of public sewer pipes that are on average 90 years old and deteriorating due to age. The project includes replacing manholes, storm drains sewer service branches that connect homes and businesses to the public sewer in the street to the curb.

Together these improvements will increase public sewer capacity, protect public health, property and the environment, and reduce the risks of street flooding and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

Construction is anticipated to begin July 2017 and take a year to complete.

Construction Locations and Methods

The current project design includes sewer construction only on the streets where work is indicated with bold lines on the project area map.
