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.

For the week starting 10/26/20
Work completed last week: Dye testing for multiple properties occurred to identify the active sewer leads to the homeowners in Manistee. Additional heavy cleaning took place on twelve sewers this week. Cured-In-Place-Pipe lining technology (CIPP) occurred on four pipes this week. The US-31 lane closure was utilized for dye testing & heavy cleaning this week.
Total rehab work completed to date: Manholes rehabbed with CIPM lining technology in the project thus far: 80 / 85 structures (94.1%). Pipes rehabbed with CIPP lining technology in the project thus far: 58 / 103 pipes (56.3%).
Anticipated work this week: Cured-In-Place-Pipe lining operations are scheduled to take place this week on ten pipes on US-31, with two crews. All east-west crossing streets between First Street and Ninth Street will still be required to travel one-way along US-31 due to the Contractor needing access to each intersection on US-31. Four manhole castings will also be replaced between First Street and Third Street, and a road repair will occur on Seventh Street this week, all in US-31. Traffic control is scheduled to be removed once pipe lining operations and manhole casting replacements are finished at the end of the week. Cured-In-Place-Manhole lining operations are scheduled to take place on two manholes on Melitzer Street and Hughes Street also this week.
Prior to pipe lining operations, dye testing operations may be coordinated at your residence to locate sanitary sewer services within the Right-Of-Way. One of the project goals is to eliminate as many inactive sewer leads as possible to reduce infiltration into the sanitary sewer system. 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. This will only be occurring for 1 day at a time unless problems arise.
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.
Project contact information: If there are any issues or concerns during the project please contact the City’s Resident Project Representative, Lucas Richardson (Spicer Group) at 231-668-1107. If Mr. Richardson cannot be reached, please contact John Bradley Project Manager at 517-719-5503.
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
Work completed last week: Restoration activities were monitored by the inspector.
Anticipated work this week: The Contractor plans to work on punch list items and complete site restoration. The Contractor and Spicer Group have a site walk though meeting scheduled to review the punch list items.
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
This project was completed all except finishing up the slope restoration (seeding/mulch/top soil) on June 5, 2020.
