McDonald’s/Highway 395 Sewer Line Replacement

The S.E. Street gravity sewer line.

DESCRIPTION

PROJECT ID: S 12.0
ESTIMATED COST: $330,000
ACTUAL COST: TBD
  • Replaces existing sanitary sewer lines in poor condition or with capacity limitations
  • Installs about 700 feet of new polyvinyl chloride sewer pipe north of McDonald’s
  • Includes roadway restoration, traffic control, high groundwater mitigation, and sewage bypass pumping

WHY IT’S NEEDED

Pipe segments were found to have structural failures in multiple locations and failing joints, causing pipe blockage and requires monthly cleaning. Additionally, pipe failure may be allowing sewage to exfiltrate into the surrounding soil. New sewer lines would eliminate current monthly maintenance costs and provide watertight lines to protect existing groundwater resources from contamination.
