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 1/25/21
Work completed last week: Cured-In-Place-Pipe lining technology (CIPP) occurred on six pipes this week with one crew installing CIPP liners. A second crew was on site performing punch list activities. On Friday, there were properties upstream of the work on Fifth Street that had experienced backup issues. During the process of installing the liner, the sewer was plugged causing a backup in the sewer. The Contractor went door to door in the area documenting the effected properties, the damages there were, and providing information to have the issues resolved. For the homeowners that could not be reached, the City and Spicer Group will review available contact information on file and provide to IPR so follow up can be made. In addition, the liner that was installed on 5th Street (between Davis Street and Ramsdell Street) appears to have a few deficiencies and will need to be repaired.
Total rehab work completed to date: Manholes rehabbed with CIPM lining technology in the project thus far: 85 / 85 structures (100%). Pipes rehabbed with CIPP lining technology in the project thus far: 103 / 103 pipes (100%).
Anticipated work this week: The Contractor plans to mobilize a crew this week to work on punch list items, and to possibly fix the defective liner if materials can be made available. The date for this work to happen has not been finalized.
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.
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
For the week starting 1/18/21
Anticipated work this week: The Contractor has suspended construction activities until the spring, at which time they will complete the remaining 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.
