Shingle Creek Sewer Improvements



HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, in coordination with the City of Suffolk, is planning a project in your neighborhood to improve the existing HRSD and City sanitary sewer pipelines that are nearing the end of their useful life. 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

The project is located near the headwaters of Shingle Creek. Work on the sewer pipeline will be along Lewis Avenue, Columbus Avenue, and following the utility easement near Shingle Creek between County Street, Factory Street, White Marsh Road, 6th Street, and the end of Freeney Avenue. This project includes sewer pipelines and manholes to be repaired from specific locations in public right-of-way for one section of sanitary sewer and only manhole repair for another section of sewer. The contractor will maintain a clean job site and minimize traffic disruption.
