CITY OF WILDROSE
SANITARY SEWER COLLECTION SYSTEM

Ackerman-Estvold serves as the City Engineer for the City of Wildrose. Ackerman-Estvold is currently working with Wildrose to replace their entire sanitary sewer collection system. The existing system was installed in 1951 and has reached the end of its service life. Furthermore, the existing system does not meet current design standards for sanitary sewer. Deficiencies in the current system include crumbling pipes, manholes with no bases, pipes with grades less than current minimum standards, pipes with reverse grades, and manholes spaced farther apart than current standards allow.

The current project includes the replacement of the City’s wastewater collection system. The project will address deficiencies in the current system and will include the installation of new PVC gravity sewer mains, new concrete manholes, and appurtenances. The proposed improvements are scheduled for the 2020 construction season.

In addition to replacing the sanitary sewer, new storm sewer will be installed to address existing drainage issues and to reduce infiltration into the sanitary sewer system.

The sewer collection system replacement will enable the City of Wildrose to better serve residents and businesses in Wildrose. Furthermore, the installation of a new gravity sewer system will eliminate deficiencies identified in the current system and decrease maintenance costs for the City.
