The City’s current Sewer Master Plan identifies the existing 18-inch sewer pipe within Tennant Avenue between Monterey Road and Railroad Avenue as deficient under peak flow conditions and recommends that it be increased in size to prevent sewer overflows within this segment of the City’s sewer system. The project is included in the adopted FY18-19 through FY 2023-24 Capital Improvement Program.
The scope of work included removal of the existing sewer pipe and installation of new 27-inch sewer pipe, auger bore under the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, temporary sewer bypass system, new manholes and/or manhole modifications, manhole coating, lateral reconnections, traffic control, project clean up and video for quality control.
The City of Morgan Hill contracted with K.J. Woods Construction, Inc. to build the project This critical infrastructure project is needed to ensure the City’s Sewer System is proactively maintained and that an aging sewer line is replaced and upgraded before failure. This proactive work helps to ensure system reliability and supports public safety and protection of the environment.
