The City of Yreka proposes to replace old portions of its sewage collection systemin the Burgess Street area neighborhood due to significant structural defects, including cracked pipe sections, partial collapses, and deformed cross-sections. Additionally, there are several sewer mains that lack maintenance access points, such as manholes or rodholes, making maintaining these lines virtually impossible without excavation. The City will replace these sewer mains with PVC mains installed solely within the City's and Caltrans's existing rights-of-way (ROW). The City will install a sufficient number of concrete manholes to facilitate proper maintenance of the new sewer mains. Laterals for each parcel served by these sewers will be replaced within the ROW, and a two-way cleanout will be installed at the property line. No work is anticipated on privately owned property. In order to minimize issues related to future maintenance of the pipeline in Main Street, the City proposes to abandon the older and smaller clay interceptor line and divert all flows into the larger existing PVC parallel interceptor line from Lennox Street to Oberlin Road. This work will require connecting all laterals and mains currently attached to the clay interceptor line to the PVC interceptor line. The proposed improvements will cross one jurisdictional water, a channelized drainage ditch located in the Burgess Street ROW, just north of Virginia Street. The purpose of the project is to ensure reliable sewer service for the benefit of the City's utility customers.
