The Pipes Are Calling
On March 16, the day before St. Patrick’s Day, Public Works/Sanitation and Environment celebrated the completion and opening of one of its most prominent projects – the Dual Force Main sewer line. The project constructed a second main sewer line from the Venice pumping plant to the Hyperion Water Treatment Plant in southern Playa del Rey.
The new force main sewer will be used in tandem with the existing force main sewer to provide sewage conveyance capacity, pipeline redundancy, and the ability to assess and conduct maintenance activities on the existing line, which dates from 1960.
Construction on the second-line project began in 2017.
Several departments contributed efforts to make the project a reality, including Public Works/Engineering, Public Works/Contract Administration, Mayor’s Office, City Council, LADOT, and others.
Congratulations to all!
