First published Thursday, September 22, 2005
Qualifications and supporting materials will be accepted at the address below until 4:00 PM, Friday October 7, 2005:

Description of Project
New building construction and planned development have created a need for new sanitary sewer. To accommodate this need the Urbana-Champaign Sanitary District is constructing a new sanitary sewer lift station south of Windsor Road and First Street in Champaign. This proposed sanitary sewer extension would serve the area to the north and east of this new lift station.

The project shall consist of:

1.Preliminary design of a sanitary sewer from south of the intersection of Saint Mary's Road and First Street to the new lift station, south of Windsor Road and First Street, in Champaign.

2.Final design and construction documents for a permanent portion of the total length from south of the intersection of Saint Mary's Road and First Street, to just south of Hazelwood Drive and South First Street. At this southern terminus of the permanent sewer a temporary connection shall be placed by routing the sewer west under South First Street to an existing sewer.

It is critical that the final design, as described in Item 2, above, be permanent, thereby allowing construction in phases.

Timely completion of the final design and construction documents is critical. The final completion date for the project is May 1, 2006.

The basis of design shall consist of serving an area bounding by Saint Mary's Road on the north, Goodwin Avenue extended on the east, Windsor Road on the south, and the CN railroad tracks on the west. In addition, a force main is being constructed, by another project, entering the northern terminus of this sewer. A sanitary sewer master plan was completed in 1991, and is a necessary input to this design.
