Sewer Rehabilitation Project in Mammoth Lakes Starting in Mid-September

Annual Sewer Maintenance Program Prolongs Utility of Pipes

 The Mammoth Community Water District maintains about 78 miles of sewer line to serve its customers.  This month, about 1.8 miles of sewer pipe will be upgraded to improve its structural integrity.

This annual maintenance work will use a trenchless technology that inserts a lining into the pipes through existing manholes. Once the lining is inserted, it cures in place to produce a watertight, smooth surface that increases the lifespan of the pipes and reduces root intrusion.  The work will start on September 25th and finish by the end of the month.  Sancon Engineering from Huntington Beach will be conducting the work.

What to Expect:

  • Traffic in work zones may be limited to single lanes or temporarily halted to accommodate equipment and protect crews.
  • Crews will be working between 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
  • Areas and streets affected by the sewer lining project include: Red Fir Rd.; Aspen Ln.; Summit St.; the area between Kelly Rd and Majestic Pine Dr.; the area behind Holiday Haus; Lake Mary Rd. around the eastern entrance to the Lake Mary Loop Rd.; and the area of cabins above Lake Mary Store.
  • If the project requires access onto your property, you will be notified via door hangers. You may be requested to reduce your water and sewer use for a short time during the curing process.
  • A strong odor may be noticed as the liner is being inserted into the pipe.

The Mammoth Community Water District requests that drivers reduce their speed, drive cautiously and watch for traffic control signs and personnel in work zones.  If you have questions about the project, you may call the Water District at (760) 934-2596.
