Sewer & Stormwater Rehabilitation Projects for 2021

We are preparing for another robust year of sewer and stormwater line improvements and replacements.  This work will include relining and replacing sections of our sewer and stormwater mains, along with replacing manhole covers and installing rain gardens.  We utilize two different methods for sewer and stormwater main rehabilitation: Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) relining and open dig replacement.  Open dig replacement is how these improvements were traditionally done, but we have found CIPP to be more cost effective and less disruptive to property owners and pedestrians.  However, there are times when replacement is the only option, like changing the diameter of the pipe.  

Properties in these project areas will receive a door hanger 48 hours in advance of the work.  We appreciate your patience during infrastructure improvement projects.  The following streets are scheduled for rehabilitation work in 2021 or 2022:


  • Greene Street (Hickok to Pearl)
  • Lakewood Parkway (#50 Lakewood to Birchwood)
  • North Avenue (Derway to #2097 North)
  • Pine Street (Bank to College)
  • Riverside Avenue (Hillside to #317 Riverside)
  • Riverside Avenue (Intervale to Bright)
  • Tallwood Lane (20 Tallwood Ln)
  • West Road (North Ave to #25 West)
