The City of Los Altos sewer main repairs consist of lining the underground sanitary sewer pipes at locations noted below to mitigate corrosion. The project will also include sewer manhole rehabilitation at a couple of locations in the street on Bayshore Parkway. The City of Los Altos awarded the construction contract to Insituform Technologies, LLC for this work.
The contractor will install “no parking” barricades as necessary in the area and will provide notices to the residents and/or businesses when work commences. This pipeline work and the manhole rehabilitation will not require digging. All work will take place within the public right-of-way and no access to private property will be necessary.
The pipeline work cannot be accomplished when there is wastewater flowing in the pipe. Therefore, there will be an aboveground bypass piping system installed in the street or in the street shoulder area between each of the pipeline segments that will be lined.
The sanitary sewer pipes at the following locations will be repaired:
