The City of Berkeley Public Works Department will be rehabilitating the sanitary sewer system at several locations throughout the City.
Construction is expected to take approximately four months to complete depending on weather or unforeseen conditions. Construction in the immediate vicinity may not extend for this entire period. Standard work hours are 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday - Friday.
Traffic control may cause delays by the work site, and street closures may be necessary but will not exceed 12 hours at a time. "No Parking" signs will be posted along the street 3 days in advance and will be enforced by the Police Department. Please see the posted signs for exact hours and locations as they may vary according to scheduled tasks. All other usual parking restrictions, including no parking for street cleaning, will still be in effect. Access to private driveways may be prohibited during some operations. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times. No significant interruptions in sewer, water, electric, gas, or phone service are anticipated, though minimizing your water usage during this time is recommended.
Property owner and resident actions
During the project, the City will replace the sanitary sewer mains and lower laterals. Property owners are encouraged to obtain a quote from the Contractor or any other contractors of their choice to replace their private lateral (upper lateral) and to obtain a private sewer lateral certificate upon completion.
