Environmental Services has completed design of a project to repair or replace up to 7,000 feet of public sewers and build up to 32 green street planters to remove 2.6 million gallons of stormwater a year from the sewer system in the northwest portion of the Sunnyside neighborhood and a portion of the Buckman community. Many of the existing combined sewer pipes are at least 100 to 120 years old and deteriorating or undersized for the sewer and stormwater flows in this area. These improvements will protect public health, property and our environment and reduce the possibility of sewage releases into streets, homes and businesses.
Construction is anticipated to begin February 2019 and may take up to a year and a half to complete. The Sunnyside East Green Street and Sewer Project to the east from SE 38th Avenue has started construction, so you will see some activity in the neighborhood.
