Environmental Services has designed the Humboldt neighborhood, the work includes repairing over 17,000 feet of public sewer pipes, that are on average 90 years old and deteriorating due to age. This work will include repairing or adding service laterals that connect houses and businesses from the curb to the public sewer in the street/alley. Taking these actions now will help protect the public and our environment by reducing the possibility of costly breaks, leaks, blockages, and sewage releases to homes, businesses, and streets.
Construction began December 27th, 2016, and will continue for about a year.
The map indicates locations where work will occur, and the construction method that will be employed. You can learn more about construction methods HERE.
Environmental Services has been granted a noise variance to allow open trench work and cured-in-place pipe lining at locations indicated on the maps below. A variance is required when work occurs outside normal construction hours, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. This includes work after 6:00 p.m. and before 7:00 a.m., and all hours on Sunday.
Nigh work for the project will be for pipes where the lining process could go into evening hours. See possible location on map above.
