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:

April 7, 2014 Update:
Major sewer repair work will start in the next few weeks on El Monte Avenue, Bayshore Parkway and San Antonio Road (north of E Charleston Road). Work on this project is expected to continue into June and will require significant lane closures on major street segments spanning the cities of Los Altos, Mountain View and Palo Alto. Those segments include the following:
Work will also be completed at two sewer manholes on Bayshore Parkway, one south of Garcia Avenue and the other near San Antonio Road.
Above ground pipes will be assembled and used as necessary along the street centerline, shoulder area and along one side of the San Antonio Road Bridge (over Highway 101) to convey sewage temporarily before the below-ground pipe and manhole repair progresses. Underground pipes will also be installed at the off and on ramps that are in the Caltrans right-of-way at Highway 101.
