2017 Sewer Improvements Project
Project Name:
     2017 Sanitary & Storm Sewer Improvements Project

General Area:
     Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest Quadrants

Project Description:
This project involves the replacement of approximately 4,400 feet of sanitary sewer and 2,300 feet of storm sewer at the locations listed below.  Through an inspection process, it has been determined that the sanitary and storm sewer in these areas has begun to fail, causing high inflow and infiltration.  In order to provide effective and reliable sanitary and storm sewer service to residents, the sewers at the following locations will be replaced and/or relocated. 

Project Locations:
  1. Sanitary sewer along and east of South L/M Street from High Avenue to Arbor Trace Drive.
  2. Sanitary sewer from North Market Street to west of Penn Blvd.
  3. Sanitary sewer along 5th Avenue between South B Street and South 1st Street.
  4. Sanitary sewer along 6th Street between A Avenue East and High Avenue East.
  5. Storm sewer along South L/M Street from A Avenue West to 3rd Avenue West.
  6. Sanitary and storm sewer at the community stadium.
