2020 Sewer Rehabilitation Project

This sanitary sewer project is designed to improve efficiency and operational integrity of the sewer collection system, reduce inflow & infiltration (I&I), reduce Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) risk and reduce the need for staff maintenance. The existing sewer mains consist of vitrified clay pipe (VCP) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes. 

The project will replace 2,900 linear feet of sewer main, 3 spot repairs and a rehabilitation of 33 manholes. The total number of laterals triggered by the project is 164. The total number of lower laterals that will be replaced with this project is 156 and approximately 4,248 linear feet of pipe. 


What streets are included in the CIP project? Harbor Drive, Echo Avenue, Yolo Street, Edgemar Way, Channel Drive, Baja Court, Madera Del Presidio (sewer main work only), Flying Cloud Course, Pacific Queen Passage, and Meadow Ridge Drive (sewer main work only).

How do I know when work will take place in front of my home? The contractor will pass out door hangers 72 hours before work begins on a new street in the project. They will also place “No Parking” signs where work will be taking place.

Will the contractor close my road so I will not have access to my home? No, the contractor is required to keep access open to the neighborhood at all times with minor traffic delays. Emergency vehicles will always have access through the work site. On some streets they may have closures to through traffic and a detour, while on other streets with no alternate route, they will leave one lane of traffic open and have alternating traffic control.

Will I have access to my driveway during working hours? The contractor will do their best to keep access open to all driveways during working hours Monday – Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm. There may be some points where they must work directly in front of a driveway and providing access will take some time. Please speak with the contractor’s staff to coordinate access to your home.

Will the contractor shut off my sewer service? No, the contractor will knock on your door and request you do not use any appliances that use a lot of water before work begins, but your sewer service will not be completely shut off.

When do I need to pressure test and/or replace my upper lateral? Per the notification letter sent to all addresses that are part of the CIP project, homeowners do not need to do any work until the Sewer District’s sewer project is complete (anticipated February, 2021). Once the project is complete, the District will send a follow up letter to all residents giving 180 days to pressure test, and if necessary, replace their upper lateral.
