The City's sewer system requires regular maintenance, including cleaning, repair, rehabilitation, and replacement. The sewer lines are essential because they carry wastewater to the City's Clean Water Facility (CWF). This project aims to rehabilitate and replace the aging sewer infrastructure. As the infrastructure ages, it becomes susceptible to cracks, root intrusions, and other defects that can diminish the effectiveness of the pipelines.
The City of Oak Harbor has created a sewer line rehabilitation/replacement program to maintain an effective sewer system. This project will increase the reliability of the sewer system and protect the environment for years to come.
Construction activities include:
- Construction of a temporary sewer bypass pump system to support the sewer system during construction
- Pipe-bursting existing concrete sewer mainline with new plastic sewer mainline
- Re-establish sewer lateral connections at the sewer mainline for each home. (Residents will experience a short interruption of sewer service during this process)
- Restoration of construction work area
