2018 Sewer Rehabilitation Project
The project involves the rehabilitation of public mainlines and public laterals, and reconnection of each homeowner’s private house service line to those rehabilitated public laterals or mainlines. The project does not include work on privately owned house service lines, except for reconnection to the public lines.
Bids for the rehabilitation work are expected to be received in January 2018. Construction is expected to begin within a few weeks after receipt of bids, and take about three months to complete. Additional notifications will be provided to property owners and residents about one to two weeks prior to the beginning of construction work within each respective area. Construction is expected to take about one or two weeks for each area of work.
Allowable construction hours are Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. and 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturdays. Construction is not allowed on Sundays or holidays. There will be temporary road lane closures during construction; traffic will be controlled with appropriate signage and/or flaggers. When needed, emergency access will be accommodated to any property, even during working hours. Roadways will be opened at night and other non-working hours.
In 2017, the City of Lake Oswego began a sewer rehabilitation project in multiple neighborhoods to improve and repair parts of the sanitary sewer system that are deteriorated. While construction was originally anticipated to occur in 2017, it has been rescheduled for the early part of 2018.
