Mission Trunk Sewer Project

Mission Trunk Sewer Project

Overview

The Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) has begun work on the Mission Trunk Sewer Project to return a critical stretch of sewer pipe to optimal operating performance, thereby ensuring continued reliable sewer service for the community.

The Mission Trunk sewer generally follows the Mission Avenue corridor, beginning upstream near American River College and ending downstream near the American River.

The project is being done in three phases (see Overview Map), with completion anticipated by the end of January 2021. Most work takes place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., although night or weekend work may be necessary at times to complete critical tasks. 

During the work, SASD will maintain uninterrupted sewer service and take measures to minimize construction impacts, including traffic slowdowns, parking restrictions, and lane or road closures. 

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, please be assured construction crews will take all necessary precautions to keep themselves and the community safe. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work to complete this essential project for the Sacramento region.

What is the Mission Trunk?

The Mission Trunk is a critical sewer line that collects wastewater from smaller collection pipes in SASD’s northeast service area, which includes Citrus Heights, Carmichael, Fair Oaks, and Orangevale. The trunk was constructed in 1962-1963 and consists of 6.5 miles of reinforced concrete pipe ranging in size from 36 to 75 inches in diameter.
