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.
The project is being done in three phases (see Overview Map), with completion anticipated by February 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.
The aging Capitola Pump Station located between Capitola Avenue and Earnscliff Avenue in Fair Oaks is in need of replacement. As one of 106 pump stations that SASD owns and operates, the aging facility is in need of replacement. 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. When complete, the new pump station will allow SASD to continue to provide reliable sewer service to the community for decades to come.
