The North Interceptor Sanitary Sewer Project began with the installation of 7,051 feet of 54-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe as part of Phase I. The second phase, Phase II, involves the installation of 20,795 feet of 48-inch fiberglass reinforced polymer mortar (FRPM) pipe. The new north interceptor will flow by gravity from just west of the existing Lift Station No. 19 at Capital Avenue and US Highway 281, along Capital Avenue. The new gravity interceptor has allowed for the abandonment of six (6) lift stations associated with the previous force main. Lift stations add extra electricity, operation and maintenance costs to the City, and cause decay within the collection system. This project has been approved for State Revolving Funds (SRF).
Design, Engineering, and Construction Cost: $23.5M
