Description

This project provided a permanent sanitary sewer replacement for affected homes located in Promontory Point. The previous sanitary sewer main, located along the northeast portion of the pedestrian trail near 102nd Ave NE, was damaged by landslides. A temporary lift station maintained sanitary sewer service for the affected homes until the new sewer was installed.

Design solutions


We contracted with HWA GeoSciences to study the geologic aspects of the landslides.  Then we hired Gray and Osborne as the City's design consultant, who proposed several design solutions. We looked closely at reliability, geotechnical concerns, maintenance, and cost. The location of the replacement sewer main minimizes ground disturbances and ties into an existing gravity-fed sewer line. 
 

Affected owners


The City began working with property owners in 2013 to negotiate for the property rights to acquire a utility easement.
