The 2013 Sanitary Sewer Master Plan Update recommended replacement of segments of pipes located at various locations throughout the City that are included in the 30-day focused cleaning schedule that have severe sags. Such sags can cause accumulation of debris and grease which necessitates frequent cleaning. This project includes four phases to replace all pipes that are currently receiving 30-day focused cleaning.
