Auburn Ravine Force Main Replacement

Replacing and aged 12-inch diameter asbestos cement pipe that conveys wastewater from the Auburn Ravine Lift Station (ARLS) to the Highway 49 sewer trunk line near Nevada Street. The pipe, which has been in place since 1959, is at the end of its useful life. The ARLS pumps are currently operated at reduced speeds to minimize internal pressure and limit the potential of pipe failure.

A full replacement of the pipeline is necessary to avoid future sewer spills and to allow the ARLS to pump at its intended design capacity. An alternatives analysis is being performed in spring 2018 and design for a selected alternative will be performed in the summer and fall of 2018. Project costs cannot be estimated until an alternative is selected.
