Sewer Manhole Rehabilitation Planned for portions of Chesapeake Avenue and Clyde Street in the City of Hampton



HRSD, your regional wastewater utility, is undertaking a multi-phased project to rehabilitate over 100 manhole structures located throughout the Hampton Roads Service Area. These below ground structures are reaching the end of their service life and require new internal protective coatings to restore the structures and prevent further corrosion. This large program is being broken into multiple phases and grouped geographically.

Project Overview
These small project locations are in the vicinity of Chesapeake Avenue and Clyde Street. This work will include, cleaning and scoring of the manhole to prepare the surface and then spraying the existing manholes with an epoxy coating to restore the structure, prevent further corrosion extending its life. The manholes in need of rehabilitation located on Chesapeake Avenue are within the City Right of Way. The manholes located adjacent to Clyde Street and Eggleston Avenue will require property access and these property owners have previously been contacted by HRSD's Real Estate Manager (Ayanna Williams) to coordinate easements and access. The contractor will maintain a clean job site and minimize disruption. Do to the nature of this work you may see the contractor come in and out of work areas multiple times completing this work in necessary stages.

Construction: September - December 2018
Restoration: Immediately following construction
