N.E. 7th Street Gravity Sewer Line Replacement

The S.E. 7th Street gravity sewer line.

DESCRIPTION

PROJECT ID: S 14.0
ESTIMATED COST: $300,000
ACTUAL COST: TBD
  • 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.
