The 2013 Sanitary Sewer Master Plan Update recommended replacement of segments of pipes at various locations throughout the City that typically have multiple moderate-to-severe structural defects (Pipe Condition Rating A). Costs are based on the open-trench method of repair because defects include sags which are difficult to correct using trenchless repair methods. The areas selected for replacement were identified in closed circuit video inspections accomplished from 2007 through 2010. This project has five phases beginning in FY 2013/14 to repair these segments.

Friday, July 29, 2016: The Structural Reach Replacement Project will begin the week of August 2, 2016 and is the second of two sewer projects that will be under construction this summer. This project replaces segments of pipes throughout the City which have been identified to have moderate to severe structural defects. Next week, the City will pilot a new replacement method called “Pipe Reaming” on the first segment of the project on Austin Avenue. Pipe reaming is a trenchless pipe replacement process that has been successful in neighboring agencies and if successful here would provide the City with another valuable option to perform this type of work.
