2017-901 Storm Sewer Maintenance Project

The City annually contracts work to maintain the City's storm sewer system. The projects are identified by inspections, life cycle evaluations, citizen inquiries, ongoing erosion problems, flood reduction investigations and/or more permanent construction from emergency repairs of flooding situations, sinkholes or other damage or failures. When feasible and cost effective, the repairs are done using trenchless techniques to avoid open-cut construction and the related traffic impacts.

  • 84XX W. 107th St. – Reconstruct storm sewer manhole
  • 56XX W. 84th St. – Remove and replace existing storm sewer catch basin and pipe
