Sanitary Sewer Mainline Replacement August 01, 2017
Construction has started on North 2nd Street, between Market Ave. and Commercial Ave. This project is replacing approximately 250 feet of sanitary sewer mainline. The City detected a deficiency in this line and has worked quickly to resolve the issue. The replacement will reduce inflow and infiltration into the City’s sewer system and treatment plants. This is when storm water runoff and groundwater enters the sanitary sewer system through cracks and/or leaks in the pipes or manholes. Replacing this mainline helps to prevent future sinkholes and failures in the infrastructure.
As always please remember to drive carefully through the work zones for your safety and for the safety of all the construction workers. Anticipated project completion is August 14.
Should you have any questions or you witness sediment being tracked offsite, please contact the City’s Project Representative Jessica Spann at 541-269-1181, extension 2221.
