South Norfolk Pump Stations & Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project



As early as Monday June 27, 2022, HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, will begin work to replace aging sanitary sewer pump stations and existing HRSD sanitary sewer pipelines and public sewer service connections that are nearing the end of their useful life. Construction work will occur Monday – Saturday between the hours of 7 AM – 7 PM. This schedule will allow for contractors to complete work on Park Avenue between Rena B. Wright Elementary School and Bainbridge Boulevard during the school’s summer recess.

Construction Update:

  • Initial work to clear brush and debris on the access road behind Rena B. Wright Elementary School began Friday, June 17th.  This work will not impact any roads or residences.
  • Starting as early as June 27, 2022, the following will occur:
    • Park Avenue, directly in front of Rena B. Wright Elementary School, will be closed to through traffic during construction. 
    • Perry Street will remain open to two-way traffic. 
    • Porter Street residents will be able to enter and exit Porter Street.
    • All traffic accessing Rena B. Wright Elementary school must follow modified traffic route detailed on the back of this notice.
  • This work will not affect your water or sewer services.
  • This work is expected to be completed by September 5, 2022 (Labor Day). 

While our project team works diligently to minimize impacts, you may notice increased noise and traffic, along with the people and heavy equipment (with back-up safety alarms) associated with construction. Please take care when traveling around the construction area and for your safety, do not enter the site. Due to the nature of construction, work is weather and situation dependent, and dates are subject to change.

Construction on the new pump station at the corner of Park Avenue and Porter Street will not occur until after the sanitary sewer pipeline construction is complete in front of the elementary school. More information on that work will be provided in the future.
