Center Ridge Road Sanitary Sewer Extension Project

The City will be extending the sanitary sewer along Center Ridge Road from Barton Road east to the city limits for approximately 3,200 feet. This capital improvement will aid in eliminating failing septic systems and provide opportunities for undeveloped lands.  The project will be paid for with sewer improvement funds.  Below is an exhibit showing the project area.  

The City’s design consultant (Bramhall Engineering & Surveying Company) is working to finalize the design based on their field surveying and geotechnical investigations previously conducted.  The design is expected to be completed by June 2021 with construction to follow.

Depending on the existing conditions, it may not be possible to accept sanitary flow by gravity for every structure.  In those instances, grinder pumps may need to be installed in order to connect to the sanitary sewer.  During the second phase of design, the City will be reaching out to each property owner to discuss the accommodations available and to determine the best location for your service lateral.

Depending on the final location of the sanitary sewer, work may include the replacement of drive aprons and clearing the tree lawn in the right-of-way.  Once the design is finalized, you may be asked to remove personal items in the right-of-way that interfere with the construction of the project such as trees, landscaping beds, irrigation systems, landscaping pavers, etc.  Property owners with these types of obstructions will be notified during the final design phase.  If you are unable to remove these items, they will be removed for you during construction.

It is anticipated that sanitary sewer taps may be available by the end of this year.  Upon completion of the sanitary sewer, property owners will be contacted by the Lorain County Public Health Department with the steps required to transition from an individual sewage system to the public sanitary sewer.

If you have further questions about this project please call the Engineering Department at 440-353-0842.
