P21178 – 16th St Emergency Sewer Repair

Project Status:

Design is in progress.

Project Description:

This project involves the repair of a wastewater line that requires emergency rehabilitation as a result of the prospect of impending system failures. The project will repair and/or replace pipe or other system components that have reached the end of their useful life or are otherwise causing problems within the collection system. This is necessary to enable the City to maintain compliance with federal and state requirements to eliminate wastewater overflows.

Springfield has an obligation under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) order to maintain the wastewater system such that all wastewater overflows are eliminated as well as assuring public health and safety.
