City Sewers Current Construction
Hoover Street and Vernon Avenue Sewer Rehabilitation Project
This sewer pipe rehabilitation project is scheduled to begin spring 2015 in South Los Angeles and is bounded by E. Jefferson Blvd to the north, Vermont Ave. to the west, S. Main St. to the east, and W. Slauson Ave to the south.
- About 3.3 miles of sewer with diameters ranging from 6 to 10 inches in diameter will be cleaned and rehabilitated. Existing maintenance holes will be rehabilitated and new maintenance holes will be constructed.
- Construction period: spring 2015 through spring 2016. Weather or other circumstances could shift the work schedule. Neighbors will be informed as conditions warrant.
- Construction will generally take place Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., and on major streets from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. to minimize traffic impacts.
- Construction Cost: $1.7M
- Construction methods will include rehabilitating existing sewers with Ultraviolet (UV) Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Liner. Sewer rehabilitation and maintenance hole rehabilitation will be performed mainly through existing maintenance holes, thereby minimizing disruption to traffic. Construction of new maintenance holes will require open-cut excavation.
