Lower Northwest Sewer and Stormwater Project

Sewer and Stormwater
Active
The Lower Northwest Sewer and Stormwater project will replace or repair aging sewer pipes in the Northwest and Pearl districts. This project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of street flooding and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets. 

The overall project is still in the early investigation and evaluation phases. Engineering design work will begin in 2022 and will potentially be completed in the spring of 2024. Construction will begin sometime after the end of design.
