Sewage Main Repair in West Fillmore Update as of July 27th


FILLMORE, CALIFORNIA – July 27, 2023 – Sewer Repair Project Update
The new traffic control in SR126 continues to operate and work has been moving along very well. All businesses adjacent to the work area are open and accessible. Both of the church driveways and the Grocery Outlet driveway at The STOP on C Street are open with access only from River Street.

The new 24" PVC line is installed up to just south of the jack and bore pit just south of SR 126, ready for connection once the encased line is completed under the highway. The Jack and Bore pit and receiving pit have been excavated and the encasement has been put on hold pending re-design to accommodate elevations in the field not matching the design. This will potentially delay the completion of the repair project by a week to ten days, but the goal is still to complete the repairs before the end of August.

We are processing change order to replace the collapsed manhole plus reconditioning the next manhole west in 12" PVC in SR126, as it is corroded and in need of replastering over the brick. This will eliminate the need to continue bypassing the D Street sewer while we complete the study/design/construction docs for Phase 2 project and save that cost as well.
City staff and contractors are working hard to finish this project and let the residents of Fillmore get back to life without the bypass pumps disrupting traffic flow and residential neighborhoods.
