Sanitary Sewer Pipe Bursting Project

The City’s contractor, PM Construction, has begun work on the Sanitary Sewer Pipe Bursting Project in multiple areas served by Wastewater Treatment Plant 1A. The project is part of the City’s FY2015 Capital Improvement Program. PM construction will replace approximately 24,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer line during the project, at a construction cost of approximately $2.6 million. The project is expected to take approximately 300 days to complete, weather permitting.

The Sanitary Sewer Pipe Bursting Project continues replacement of the aging sanitary sewer collection system in the service area of Waste Water Treatment Plant 1A, an area which experiences issues with stoppages and service problems related to deteriorated, collapsed, or missing pipe, and inflow and infiltration during rainfall events.

The contractor will utilize a trenchless rehabilitation method, minimizing excavation at the construction sites. Door hangers will be distributed to addresses whose service will be affected prior to work, and will include information on estimated outages, and project contacts. Work will typically be performed between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Residents are asked to exercise caution in the construction areas, to observe all detour and caution signs, and to heed instructions provided by the contractor for affected properties. General project questions may be directed to Citizen Relations at (832) 595-3301.
