Work Continues on F.C. Sewer Rehab

Work is continuing on the City of Falls Church’s annual sanitary sewer rehabilitation project tasked with extending the life of existing sewer mains and reducing treatment costs paid by the City.

This week, AM-Liner East will rehabilitate sanitary sewer mains on the following schedule: today, Monday, June 7, 400 block of Little Falls Street, Tuesday, 300 block of Shirley Street and 200-300 blocks of Hillwood Avenue, Wednesday, 1000 block of Parker Street and Thursday, 500 block of Meridian Street. On Tuesday the work on Hillwood Avenue is expected to begin at 5 p.m. and be completed by 11 p.m..

The total project will include lining approximately 9,100 linear feet of sewer main with polyester resin on the following streets: Brice Street, Cleave Drive, East Broad Street, Ellison Street, Greenwich Street, Great Falls Street, Hillwood Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, Linden Lane, Meridian Street, Parker Street, Patterson Street, Scipio Lane, Shirley Street, South Oak Street, and South Washington Street.

The project is part of the Department of Environmental Services Public Utilities Division Comprehensive Sanitary Sewer System Improvement Plan developed in 2003 which outlines a phased program of sewer system evaluation and rehabilitation. The project began in early May when AM-Liner East, Inc began inspecting the sewer lines to be rehabilitated.

The second phase of the project, which involves the insertion of a new liner into the sewer main, is expected to continue through the end of June. Customers will be notified and provided with more detailed information shortly before the sewer line serving their residence is scheduled for rehabilitation.

More information about the project is available from the City’s Public Utilities Division at 703-248-5070 (TTY 711).
