Sewer cleaning and televising is underway as part of the City’s SAW (Stormwater, Asset Management, and Wastewater) Grant work.

The purpose of the cleaning and televising is to assess the condition of a portion of the City’s sanitary and storm sewers in order to develop a comprehensive Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) of the City’s infrastructure in the Right-of-Way. The CIP will also consider water main and roadway condition as part of the effort.

As of September 9th, approximately 67,000 feet of sewer has been cleaned and 52,000 televised. Televising started earlier this summer in the southeasterly corner of the City and has moved west and north over time. Work will continue in the downtown area, along the Lake and north of the St. Joseph River in the coming weeks; the contractor was instructed to stay clear of these locations during the busy summer months. Progress is nearing the halfway point with completion anticipated prior to Thanksgiving. The general sewer cleaning and televising map can be accessed by clicking here. Please direct questions related to the project to City Engineer Tim Zebell.
