Concordia Sewer Repair Project

Updated November 2, 2018

Environmental Services is finishing up construction of the sewer project to replace or repair up to 16,000 feet, or about 3 miles, of public sewer pipes in the Concordia Neighborhood, plus a few blocks in Woodlawn and Beaumont-Wilshire. Most of the sewer pipes were 90-100 years old and in deteriorating condition. The sewer repairs will improve sewer and stormwater infrastructure, increase sewer capacity, and reduce the risks of street flooding and sewage releases to homes, businesses, and streets.

Developments of Note

Environmental Services staff notify the public in advance of the construction activities, provide information throughout the project, and work to resolve problems during construction. Our intent is to identify concerns and minimize disruption as much as possible while completing these necessary projects.

Now that the work is almost completed in your area, we ask for your help to measure how we did.

Please complete this survey online at to help assess the effectiveness of our public involvement and community outreach efforts.
