18th & Fort Sewer Improvements Project


Schedule

This project is currently in the development of the Request for Proposal stage.

Project Description

The 18th and Fort Sewer Improvements project is a Renovation of Combined Sewer (RNC) Project intended to reduce the surcharging of the combined sewer system along Fort Street between 16th and 20th Streets. This combined sewer originates at N. 26th and Taylor Streets and flows into the North Interceptor just east of N. 17th and Fort Streets.

The project area is generally bounded on the north by Fort Street, on the south by Taylor Street, on the east by 16th Street, and on the west by 26st Street.

Project Benefits

This 18th and Fort Sewer Improvements project is intended to reduce the surcharging of the combined sewer system and ultimately result in reduced sewer backups into area homes.

Construction

There is approximately 14 acres of surface drainage contributing to the combined sewer system upstream of the manhole that has historically surcharged north of 1823 Fort Street.  The stormwater from these areas may be redirected to the storm sewer system serving the Storz Expressway/North Freeway and/or the storm sewer constructed as part of the N. 21st Street and Ames Avenue and N. 25th and Meredith Streets Sewer Separation project (RNCL 5941).
