Scottsdale Ranch Sewer Line Rehabilitation
The city of Scottsdale will be rehabilitating a large sewer mainline pipe in Scottsdale Ranch beginning in the fall of 2020. This critical project will require the complete closure of the trail along the southern boundary of Scottsdale Ranch adjacent to the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community between 96th and 104th streets for approximately five months.
As part of a citywide sewer condition assessment, this 5,300 linear foot segment of sewer pipe was identified to be at critical risk of failure. The project will address the deficient sewer capacity and odors currently being caused by the highly corroded pipe and manholes.
The pipe will be repaired through a cured-in-place pipe solution, which involves lining the pipe with a resin that, when cured, acts as a new pipeline. While the technique is considered a trenchless technology, digging and heavy equipment will be part of the construction process. The project will also require a sewer bypass be established to continue providing sewer service for the large customer base served by the line.
What to Expect
- Trail Closure
- The trail will be closed at all times between 96th and 104th streets for the duration of the project. Trail users must exit the trail and use surface streets (not washes) in Scottsdale Ranch as a detour. Trespassing on the Indian Community land is a crime.
- In addition to normal heavy construction noise, which will generally occur during daytime hours, a generator will be required to operate the sewer bypass. Homes close to the construction area may hear the generator, which will run 24 hours a day.
- Dust control
- The contractor will provide continual dust control as required by Maricopa County Environmental Services.
- Work hours
- Construction times will generally be 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Hours could shift earlier based on weather.
- Overnight work
- Sewer work is generally performed at night when sewer use and flows are lower. There may be various times throughout the project when overnight work will be required. Homes that back to the project area will be notified in advance of scheduled overnight work.
The project is expected to begin in fall 2020 and will last approximately five months.
