LATERAL REPLACEMENT & BASEMENT PROTECTION

July 24, 2014



Project Start : 2014 Project End : 2015 Status : Active Phase : Execution Value : $220,000 Location : United States Sector : Infrastructure Scope : During FY 1999-2000, the City Council adopted three new programs to assist property owners with sanitary sewer lateral service issues. The Basement Flooding Protection Loan Program provides a no-interest, ten-year loan to assist property owners with installation of backflow protection valves and sump pumps needed to protect buildings from flooding due to the sanitary sewer system. The Council also adopted a Basement Flooding Protection Grant Program that provides limited City participation in the cost of basement flooding protection improvements. The grant program is targeted for properties that have experienced frequent flooding, have responded with good faith efforts to minimize the flooding risk, and in spite of these efforts, continue to experience basement flooding. The lateral replacement program provides a one-time-only replacement of qualifying sanitary sewer service laterals on private property. Replacement of these laterals reduces the amount of infiltration entering the sanitary sewer system through cracks and breaks in older, deteriorated service lines. Operating Budget Impact: This project will reduce sewer maintenance costs over the long term by reducing the amount of extraneous flow into the sanitary sewer system that is receiving treatment.
