Sewer Manhole Rehabilitation Project


HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, is undertaking a project to rehabilitate and perform maintenance for an existing sanitary sewer manhole located at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and Monroe Place in Norfolk, Virginia. In order to achieve the rehabilitation needed for the manhole, the contractor will install a bypass pipe on the existing sewer line running along Monroe Place. This will allow the wastewater to flow through a temporary bypass pipe so your sewer service should not be interrupted. This bypass pipe will be installed north of the intersection, and bypass piping will be placed under the road to a manhole on Monroe Place near Rockbridge Avenue. Road closures will be needed in order to place the bypass piping and rehabilitate the manhole. Road closures to through traffic and detour signs will be in place during the project; local traffic will be able to access their homes. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the project are provided on the back of this notice.
