48th Street and Burt Street Sewer Separation Project (RNC)


Project work is currently on hold.

Project Description

The 48th & Burt Street Sewer Separation Project is bounded by 47th Street on the east to 49th Street on the west; California Avenue to Cuming Street.

During the study phase of this project, the project team will determine the capacity of the system, identify where there are sewer back-ups and street flooding and identify possible green solutions that can be used to solve these problems.

The first public meeting regarding this project was held Wednesday, June 27, 2012. At that time, area residents and business owners were given an overview of what it will take to reduce sewer back-ups in the neighborhoods. A survey conducted by the project team which asked residents to provide information regarding their access to the city sewer system and whether or not they have experienced back-up problems was discussed.

This project has been put on indefinite hold due to the high estimated cost of the project.
