LOOMIS DIVERSION TRUNKLINE PROJECT

Project Overview

SPMUD is constructing a sewer pipeline within the Town of Loomis.  The pipeline will divert flow from an existing 10-inch sewer pipeline that was constructed when SPMUD was founded in 1958.  The existing 10-inch pipeline can no longer accommodate the required flow.  The construction of the new sewer pipeline has been anticipated by SPMUD since the 1980’s and completion of the project will ensure adequate capacity to convey wastewater flows.  SPMUD and the Town of Loomis have cooperatively worked on the planning and implementation of this project since 2014.

Project Highlights

Approximately 1.4 miles of new 15-inch and 18-inch pipe will be installed, from the existing sewer line at the southern end of Dias Lane to the sewer line located north of the Raley’s on Horseshoe Bar Road.  The sewer line will be constructed along Brace Road and Betty Lane.  The project also includes two trenchless (i.e., jack and bore) crossings; one under Horseshoe Bar Road and the other beneath Interstate 80.

Project Funding

The project will be paid for by SPMUD and is funded by the participation fees collected from new connections and will not affect monthly sewer rates.

Construction Timeline

SPMUD awarded the contract for construction of the project in June 2017 and construction began in July 2017.  Construction is anticipated to continue into the spring of 2018. SPMUD will provide inspection during construction.  Staff will be available by phone and email to respond to questions and concerns.

What to Expect

SPMUD has planned the project and is working with the contractor to minimize potential impacts on residents and customers.  Construction activities can create temporary inconveniences which may include temporary road closures, traffic delays, and construction noise.  Customers will be notified by the contractor before work begins near their home or business.

Status Update

As of late September, our contractor, T&S Construction Inc., is finishing the pipeline installation in Betty Lane and is continuing to excavate for pipe installation on the undeveloped property east of Betty Lane.  Work has been difficult due to the presence of large rock formations in the trench excavations.  Once the pipeline is installed in Betty Lane, work will begin installing pipeline in Dias Lane.

The map below shows the alignment of the pipeline and where construction activities are currently taking place.
