Sewer Improvement Projects
The Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) is working 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.
Now nearly complete, the project has been done in three phases (see Overview Map), with completion anticipated by March 2021.
During the work, SASD has maintained uninterrupted sewer service and has taken measures to minimize construction impacts, including traffic slowdowns, parking restrictions, and lane or road closures.
The aging Capitola Pump Station between Capitola Avenue and Earnscliff Avenue in Fair Oaks will undergo a major upgrade in 2021. This project is necessary to ensure continued reliable sewer service for the community. This project will replace all components in the pump station and install a new wet well and valve vault. The project will also include replacing the headwall in the culvert under the station, installing a new curb and guardrail along the driveway, building a new retaining wall, and paving new asphalt.
