2018 Sanitary Sewer Infiltration Reduction Project

The City of Arcata has contracted with G.R. Sundberg Construction, Inc., for the 2018 Sanitary Sewer Infiltration project. The project involves the replacement and/or the rehabilitation of existing sewer lines to eliminate water intrusion into the City's sewer collection system due to storm events and high ground water.

The 2018 Sanitary Sewer Infiltration Reduction Project has been a long term goal for the City of Arcata as it is vital to maintaining Arcata’s core infrastructure. The City is thrilled to begin making these improvements for our community. Upon completion, this project will reduce the amount of wastewater that is processed through Arcata's wastewater treatment facility greatly reducing the possibility of sanitary sewer overflows and lowering operating costs.

Construction for this project begins Monday, June 18, 2018 and should be completed by Fall 2019.

Due to the work required for this project, neighborhood residents in construction zones may experience brief sewer and water service interruptions. The City of Arcata will notify effected property owners, businesses and tenants serviced by the sewer mains selected for rehabilitation by mail. 72 hours in advance of these interruptions door hangers will be placed notifying of impending sewer and water service interruptions. It is anticipated that residents effected will have several minor service interruptions through the duration of this project.

The City of Arcata apologizes for any inconvenience that this project may cause to neighborhood residents, and thanks community members in advance for their cooperation. On the days of scheduled work, community members are advised to follow all directions and traffic control devices within the construction area.

If problems are encountered with this project, please contact G.R. Sundberg Construction at 707- 825-6565 or the City of Arcata at 707-825-2173.
