Project Description

The intent of this project was to reduce or eliminate the frequency of sewer backups in this area.

Approximately 7,800 feet of sewers, ranging in size from 15-inch to 84-inch in diameter were constructed during this project. In addition, this $5.6 million project included construction of an underground detention system to provide water quality benefits, reduce peak storm water discharge to the already over-capacity downstream combined trunk sewer, and to allow stormwater infiltration to flow through the system.

This project required close coordination with the Metropolitan Utilities District and other utilities for the relocation of gas and water system components in the area.
