Alum Creek Trail – Sanitary Sewer Rehab Project
January 18, 2018 - February 1, 2019

CIP 650725.02 – Alum Creek Trunk (North) and Subtrunk Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project 

ALUM CREEK SANITARY SEWER REHAB PROJECT

CIP 650725.02 – Alum Creek Trunk (North) and Subtrunk Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project 

The Alum Creek Trunk Sewer ranges in diameter from 42 inches to over 102 inches, and was constructed of reinforced concrete in the late 1960s. Recent closed-circuit TV camera inspections have revealed that the concrete has started to crack and erode, and must be repaired in order to continue serving the surrounding areas. The City of Columbus will be performing “trenchless” rehabilitation of approximately 6,700 lineal feet of this sewer, along with spot repairs in various locations ( see accompanying map) in order to extend its service life.

The estimated opinion of probable cost to rehabilitate this sewer is approximately $6 million; construction is currently anticipated to begin during summer 2015 and is expected to last approximately one year.

As the trunk sewer is located along the Alum Creek Multi-Use Trail, users may notice caution signs, temporary ramps, and construction activity in close proximity. Every effort will be made to reduce any disruption to public accessed areas.

The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project.View the LER and the letter of “Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies.”

Questions regarding this project should be directed to Nick Domenick, P.E. atNJDomenick@columbus.gov.
