Environmental Services has completed a project to replace and upsize about 700 feet of public sewer pipes on SE 45th and SE 46th avenues between SE Sherman and SE Division streets, and 320 feet of pipe on SE Ivon Street between SE 41st and SE 42nd avenues. The sewer pipes replaced on this project were over 100 years old and reaching the end of their useful life.
The work also included repairing or replacing 12 storm drains, 3 manholes, and 35 service laterals that connect houses from the curb to the public sewer in the street.
In addition, this project worked with individual property owners on SE 45th and SE 46th avenues with nonconforming sewer connections to resolve issues and provide those properties direct connections to the public sewer system.
These improvements will help protect public health, property and the environment by reducing the risks of street flooding and sewage releases to homes and streets.
