In 2013, the sanitary sewer replacement priorities were established to improve the backyard sewers
and replacement of older failing sewer lines. There were 7 priority projects identified and a program and funding established to accomplish those priorities and also some repair and replacement of some of the older and poor conditioned sewer pipe.
The first 2 priority projects, Del Monte Ave. and Regents Blvd., have been completed. In addition, replacement work was done on the 1000 block of Alameda to repair the sewer due to conditions of the pipe. These projects were completed in 2013.
The 3rd and 4th priority projects, Golden Gate to Harvard and the Eldorado/Farallone alley projects will be constructed the summer and fall of 2014.
The remaining priority backyard sewer projects 5, 6 and 7, Summit/Golden Gate, Eldorado/Del Monte, and Summit/Farallone will be designed in late 2014 and constructed in 2015 and 2016.
Public Works will also be assessing and evaluating the older and poorer conditioned sewer priorities by additional video inspection to further define the needed point repairs and replacements that need to be done. This process will continue as an ongoing repair and replacement program to maintain our sanitary sewer infrastructure.
As the year progresses, Public Works staff will continue to evaluate and update priorities to assure that the most needed sewers are repaired or replaced and utilize the funding available to accomplish that task.
