Fixing Sewers - What a Relief

Phase 1 of this project is complete! Thank you to the entire community for your patience and understanding during this important infrastructure work - What a Relief!

Sanitary Sewer System Rehabilitation Program

Sewer-Sign-FINAL

The City of Monterey is repairing and replacing its aging sewer system. The project will fix 441 sewer pipes and 516 sewer manholes located in streets and easements throughout the City. This is the second phase of a project that began in 2014. A rehabilitated sewer system will prevent sewer leaks and spills that could harm our quality of life, local economy and the pristine waters of the Monterey Bay.

Repairs are expected to begin in early 2016 and may continue for 18 months. Sewer pipes and manholes most in need of rehabilitation due to cracks, breaks, or root intrusion will be fixed first. Repairs may involve trenching, pipe bursting, or pipe lining.

Monterey’s engineering staff will be meeting with neighborhood groups and business associations in November and December to outline the project and its impact on local areas.

Funding for the $16 million sewer rehabilitation program comes from a low-interest state loan. The City has already completed a rehabilitation project on the city’s five sewer lift stations.
