Diamond Springs Sewer Replacement



HRSD, your regional wastewater utility, is undertaking a project to transfer the flow from an aging sanitary sewer pipeline in the Diamond Springs Road area of Virginia Beach to a nearby HRSD sewer pipeline. Once the transfer of flow is complete, the aging sanitary sewer pipeline will be filled with cementitious material, and inline valves and related components will be constructed to provide additional isolation of the nearby existing pipeline system in case of any emergencies.The answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are provided here.

Project Overview

The work will be completed within four general locations within the Right-Of-Way. Work Areas 1-2 have been completed, and Work Area 3 is nearing completion. Work Area 4, which is adjacent to the intersection of Wesleyan Drive and Diamond Springs Road, will begin soon. The contractor will maintain a clean job site and implement comprehensive traffic control plans to minimize inconvenience. Some work at Work Area 4 will include overnight “around the clock” work.
