Environmental Services, the city’s sewer and stormwater utility, is designing a project to extend the public sewer system to properties where service is only available through neighboring properties. This type of connection is most commonly referred to as a party sewer. The project will install 1,200 feet
of main line public sewer pipe, 12 new manholes, and branch connections to 23 properties in the Buckman neighborhood. This project will help protect public health and our environment. Construction is anticipated to begin this summer and be completed in about eight months.
Over the next months, crews will be in the neighborhood gathering information to design this extension of the sewer system. Crews will survey the neighborhood and access sewers from manholes to inspect pipes. They will place temporary paint markings on the pavement to mark the locations of pipes and other underground utilities.
