Goose Creek Trunk Sewer Project

Goose Creek Trunk Sewer Project

Beginning in September 2020, the Goose Creek Trunk Sewer Replacement/Rehabilitation Project will address repairs to 7,850 feet of existing sanitary sewer lines ranging from 21" through 36". The project will include rehabilitation work on sewers that are sufficiently sized, but are in poor condition as well as replacement of undersized sewers and sewers with insufficient slopes. This project is anticipated to take one year to complete. 

Please visit the city's cone zones map  for up-to-date impacts to vehicular lanes and multi-use paths. 

The project was identified as one of the four highest priorities for the sanitary sewer collection system. The sewer system in this area is in poor condition and portions are undersized to meet the growing needs of the community especially during significant storm events. This can lead to wastewater backing up into homes or polluting the surrounding environment. 

The project will start with lining and replacement activites along Walnut near Foothills Parkway and head north to the Goose Creek trail. From the Goose Creek trail, the project turns east continuing along the path, across open fields, beneath Pearl Parkway and ending on the east side of 55th St. 

The city has hired a prairie dog relocation specialist to move the animals away from the areas expected to be impacted by construction. The contractor will use passive relocation methods to close off existing burrows. Once the project is complete the area will be restored and the prairie dogs will be allowed to return.
