Phase I Sewer Defects Repairs

  1. Project Overview
  2. Project Status
The Phase I Sewer Defects Repairs project consists of rehabilitating defective sewer pipes and manholes using trenchless technologies in several subareas generally located south of Waverly Street. The sewer pipe segments and manholes selected for rehabilitation were based on inspections conducted during Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Surveys (SSES) completed between 2007 and 2012. The sewer inspection and rehabilitation work is performed by Green Mountain Pipeline. Preceding any pipe rehabilitation work, pipe segments previously identified as having defects warranting trenchless rehabilitation will be cleaned and inspected by the Contractor. The pipe rehabilitation portion of the Project includes approximately 6,000 feet and repair of 115 manholes.

Two of the most important goals of this project are as follows:

1. Maximize/optimize the quantity of defect repairs that significantly reduce infiltration.
2. Extend the service life of the sewer, reduce the risk of failure, and reduce the need for O&M (inspection, cleaning, repairs, etc.)

This project is expected to be completed by the end of Fall 2017. We anticipate small disruptions of the sewer service for about two hours at the locations where the repairs are taking place. The contractor will deliver notices ahead of time to the residents affected on a regular basis.

The main locations for this repairs to take place are as follows: Cedar Street, Charles Street, Daytona Avenue, Hollis Street, Thayer Street, Glen Street, Kendall Avenue, South Street, Whitney Avenue, Willis Avenue, Benson Avenue, Palmetto Avenue, Pershing Avenue, and Rhubena Street.
