Design efforts are underway for water and sewer improvements in the Arlington Street area. Much of the existing infrastructure in this area is approximately 100 years old and in poor condition. Some water pipes are tuberculated, resulting in low water pressure. Rehabilitation will consist of sewer and manhole lining. Where pipe conditions are too poor to be rehabilitated, replacement will be recommended. Water and sewer services and hydrants will also be replaced.
Once the design for utilities is complete, drainage, sidewalk, and roadway design will follow, providing funding will be approved.
Benefits and Impacts:
Improved water pressure and fire flow to the neighborhoods.
Reduction of infiltration and inflow from leaking sewer pipes.
A 10% preliminary design and technical memo has been prepared for replacement or rehabilitation of water and sewer mains and service connections. Currently, there is no funding for drainage, sidewalk, or roadway improvements. However, future improvements to the drainage will be factored into the sewer and water design to avoid utility conflicts. Construction is contingent upon funding and will be completed in phases due to the scale of the project and to mitigate impacts to residents.
