NE Grand and Hancock Sewer Repair Project

Updated November 20, 2019Button. Click to sign up for email updates

Environmental Services – your sewer and stormwater utility – is designing a project to repair several hundred feet of public sewer pipe in your neighborhood that is showing signs of deterioration due to age. This project will protect public health, property and the environment. Construction is anticipated to begin in Spring 2020.

Survey Work Survey markings

Over the next few months, crews will be in the neighborhood periodically to locate and mark underground utilities by painting stripes on streets and sidewalks or placing colored flags in landscaped areas. Each color indicates what is buried below. Blue for water, yellow for natural gas, green for sewer, etc. Please visit for a list and description of other activities that occur before the sewer work can take place.
