Wastewater Collection System Rehabilitation (RD1A)
This Project’s goals include eliminating infiltration, extending the structural service life of the sanitary sewer, rehabilitating the structural defects, and improving flow capacity in the wastewater collection system. The Project consists of approximately 5.4 miles (28,400 feet) of cured in place pipe lining (CIPP) of existing 8-inch to 30-inch diameter sanitary sewer; cured in place manhole lining (CIPM) for approximately 85 structures, and removal / replacement of approximately 66 sanitary manhole frames and covers. Additional work includes trenchless spot repairs at 3 locations, and installation of 9 internal drop structures. This Project will require reduced water usage from the residents, cooperation of relocating vehicles for on-street parking, safely traveling through a detour along US-31, and potential dye testing inside the owner’s residence for service reinstatement. See map showing the location of the overall anticipated work. https://www.manisteemi.gov/DocumentCenter/View/4511/Wastewater-Collection-System-Rehabilitation-RD1A-Map
For the week starting 8/3/20
Work completed or on-going work this week: Contractors were able to rehab two manholes with Cured-In-Place-Manhole lining technology (CIPM) and three pipes with Cured-In-Place-Pipe lining technology (CIPP) on the north side of the river. Benches, flow channels, and preparation work was also completed in some of the manholes that will be lined with the CIPM liners in the following week.
Anticipated work next week: The Contractors plan to continue preparing manhole structures to be lined by building benches, flow channels, and smoothing out sharp edges within the structures. Cured-In-Place-Manhole and Cured-In-Place-Pipe lining will continue this week in various locations.
Prior to pipe lining operations, dye testing operations may be coordinated at your residence to locate sanitary sewer services within the Right-Of-Way. Homeowners shall be notified ahead of time via door hanger that lining operations will be in the vicinity of their homes. Additionally, if lining work is to occur along local streets with on-street parking, there is a possibility that temporary no parking signs will be placed by the City of Manistee due to limited working space.
Though rare, residents could experience “burping” within toilets or sinks when cleaning operations are present. Please see the sewer rehab letter posted on the City website for additional information regarding the sewer cleaning process, details about the project, and potential future dye testing procedures that may be required to occur at your residence. If your residence requires dye testing, you will be notified in advance to coordinate with the Engineer and Contractor to successfully locate your sanitary sewer lead.

Street, Water Main, Storm and Sanitary Sewer Improvements (RD1B)
This Project’s goals are to decrease flooding, lower groundwater elevations, provide stormwater outlets to relieve pressure on the sanitary sewer system, upgrade under-sized water main, repair broken sections of sanitary sewer, and reconstruct 9 blocks of City streets. This Project consists of approximately 3,900 linear feet of 12-inch to 24-inch diameter storm sewer and associated roadway improvements, reconstruction including replacement of 900 feet of water main, and sanitary sewer spot repairs throughout the City. This Project will require coordination from the residents including times of reduced water usage, cooperation of relocating vehicles for on-street parking, drive access, and reconnecting water services. See map showing the location of the overall anticipated work. https://www.manisteemi.gov/DocumentCenter/View/4510/Street-Water-Main-Storm-and-Sanitary-Sewer-Improvements-RD1B-Map
For the week starting 8/3/20
Work completed or on-going work this week: The Contractor finished constructing the new 8-inch ductile iron water main along Fremont Street, and began replacing galvanized water services along First Avenue.
Anticipated work next week: The Contractor plans to chlorinate and prepare the new 8-inch ductile iron water main along Fremont Street to be tied into the City’s distribution system, continue replacing galvanized water services on First Avenue, and install the water services on Fremont Street onto the new 8-inch ductile iron water main.
Street and Storm Sewer Improvements (2019-2020 Street Improvements)
This Project’s goals are to decrease flooding and to reconstruct 4 blocks of City streets. This Project consists of approximately 1,070 linear feet of road reconstruction and 950 linear feet of 18-inch to 24-inch storm sewer improvements and associated drainage structures. This Project will require coordination from the residents for cooperation of relocating vehicles for on-street parking, drive access, and reconnecting water services. See map showing the location of the overall anticipated work. https://www.manisteemi.gov/DocumentCenter/View/4509/Street-and-Storm-Sewer-Improvements-2019-2020-Street-Improvements-Map
Work completed or on-going work this week: Slope restoration and areas susceptible to erosion were monitored by the inspector, however the project has not been finalized.
Anticipated work next week: The Contractor is working on scheduling the remaining punch list items to finish out the project.
