Sanitary Sewer Improvements

The City of Scottsdale Water Resources Department has identified sections of the City’s sanitary sewer collection system that are in need of improvement.


The sewer pipes run through the neighborhood easements. A new lining must be installed on the interior of the existing sewer pipe.

The goals of this program are to conduct sewer inspections, extend the sewer collection system, remove lift stations where possible, repair sewer breaks, rehabilitate aging components of the system and reline existing sewer pipes to extend service life.

The majority of the sections that need to be rehabilitated are located south of Indian Bend Road.  The city began this project in 2009 and performs work in several neighborhoods each year.
