City of Aneta Water and Sewer Improvement Project
The purpose of the proposed action is to update the water and sewer systems in the city of Aneta. The project, to be undertaken by the city of Aneta, would consist of removing and replacing 44 blocks of existing cast iron water mains and services and installing new PVC pipes by open trench method and by horizontal directional drilling (trenchless) method of construction. The project also includes rehabilitation of 48 blocks of vitrified clay sewer mains by relining with cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP), which is a trenchless method of construction. The project will also replace water services, gate valves, non-working curb stops, rehabilitate manholes, restore pavement, hydrants, complete miscellaneous concrete repairs, and final site stabilization. Steel casing will need to be bored under the BNSF railroad tracks to allow for installation of the new water main looping which will provide a second connection to the northeast portion of the city.
