Project Description
New building construction and planned development have created a need for new public sanitary sewer. This proposed public sanitary sewer extension will connect the area north and east of South First Street and Windsor Road to the Urbana-Champaign Sanitary District (UCSD) South First Street Pump Station.

The project shall consist of:

1. Confirmation of a preliminary design of a sanitary sewer from approximately the intersection of East Hazelwood Drive and South First Street to the UCSD South First Street Pump Station.

2. Final design and construction documents for only a portion of the total length of the sanitary sewer from the area to the north and east of South First Street and Windsor Road to the Urbana-Champaign Sanitary District (UCSD) South First Street Pump Station.

It is critical that the final design in item 2 be consistent with the entire length of sanitary sewer, allowing only a portion of the sewer to be constructed at this time.

This sanitary sewer must be constructed in an accelerated manner, therefore, the contract documents must be prepared within a shortened timeframe.

The basis of design shall consist of serving an area bounded by East St. Mary's Road on the north, South Goodwin Avenue extended on the east, East Windsor Road on the south, and the CN railroad tracks on the west. It should be noted the reach of public sanitary sewer from East St. Mary's Road to a point just south of East Hazelwood Drive has been constructed. A sanitary sewer master plan was completed in 1991, and the construction documents from the reach of sewer previously constructed, are necessary inputs to this design.

Project Budget: $412,000
Construction Budget: $345,000
