N.E. 7th Street Gravity Sewer Line Replacement
The S.E. 7th Street gravity sewer line.
|PROJECT ID:||S 14.0|
- Replaces existing sanitary sewer lines that are in poor condition or have capacity limitations
- Installs about 600 feet of new polyvinyl chloride sewer pipe and precast manholes
- Includes roadway restoration, traffic control, and sewage bypass pumping
WHY IT’S NEEDED
Multiple deficiencies exist in the pipe segments, including structural failures, sagging, root intrusions, and separated joints that cause blockages hindering sewer flow and require the City to clean this line monthly. Newly installed pipe will save maintenance costs and drastically reduce the likelihood of blockages, mitigating the potential for sewage backing up into local residences.
