Queenston Sewer Improvements

In Planning Sewer

This sewer separation project along portions of Queenstown Street, Lucina Avenue, and Walton Avenue in the Carrick Neighborhood will help to reduce nearby flooding and basement backups.

Progress & Status

Design Complete

Phase One: Phillips Park Stormwater Project

Phase Two: Queenston Sewer Improvements

  • Separate wastewater (sanitary sewage) from stormwater in 700 linear feet of existing combined sewer pipes. 
  • Install new sanitary sewer pipes to convey only wastewater.
  • Convert existing combined sewer pipes into dedicated storm sewer pipes to create more room for stormwater.
  • Decommission certain existing sanitary and storm sewer pipes.
  • Possible installation of sanitary and storm sewer pipes to connect buildings to respective sewers (field and engineering investigation pending). 

Additional Information

  • As we get closer to construction, we will reach out to affected customers using methods such as door hangers and robocalls.
