Shell Road Sanitary Sewer Pipeline Realignment



HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, in coordination with the City of Chesapeake, is planning a project in your neighborhood to remove from service an aging sewer force main and reroute City force main connections. This replacement project will also improve the system’s performance and ensure continued, reliable sewer service in the future. The answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are provided here.

Project Overview
This project has four distinct locations in the Deep Creek area of Chesapeake. Phase 1 is located on Shell Road from the Forest Cove Drive intersection to the Currie Avenue Intersection.  Phase 2 is located along Steel Street near Currie Avenue.  Phase 3 is located along Winslow Avenue near Magnolia Avenue.  Phase 4 is located along Bainbridge Boulevard between Great Bridge Boulevard and Gregg Street. This project includes installation of multiple pipelines, installed within the city right-of-way, and the removal from service of one pipeline.
