Mañana Lane Sewer Replacement Project



The Watsonville City Council approved at its February 23, 2016 meeting the plans and specifications and advertising for bids for this project.

What’s the Project?

In 2007 the City of Watsonville retained MWH consulting engineers to prepare the Sanitary Sewer Capacity and Assurance Plan to identify areas subject to sewer overflows in order to develop a priority plan to rehabilitate and replace problem sewers. The Mañana Lane sewer which drains residential neighborhoods and runs between Manana Lane and Auto Center Drive where it is located on a combination of streets and easements is among the top priority sewers requiring replacement with larger pipes because of capacity problems that cause overflows.

Staff has prepared plans and specifications for the project. The Mañana Lane sewer drains 110 acres of residential neighborhoods west of Freedom Boulevard. The project will replace 3,150 lineal feet of 8”, 10”, and 12” sewer pipe with 15”, 16” and 18” sewer pipe. The project will construct the pipeline using both trenchless and open cut pipeline construction methods. The estimated cost of the project is $1.27 million.
