- 106th Street & Cumberland Rd. force main fracture repair:
Engineering work is taking place prior to making repairs to the sanitary force main. Due to the hill side related utilities, it is imperative for Citizens Water to be able to ensure water main service and safety of its customers prior to HSEU performing repair work of its force main on the south side of the Pine Bluff Overlook Development, located east of the above referenced intersection.
- 116th Street Lift Station Upgrade:
HSEU is presently completing electrical service upgrade work for this facility. This has included a new backup power generator, pad mounted transformer with increase capacity, new dual action macerator due to increased “non-flushable” disposable paper products, and all new control system and switch gear.
- Thorpe Creek Lift Station
Preliminary construction work will be taking place over the next few months in preparation for a complete renovation of the Thorpe Creek lift station facility, located east of the Geist Overlook Subdivision (near E. 116th Street & Ringer Rd). Hence, the walking path in the area accessed off Gatwick View Dr. may be closed due to construction traffic. Notification of the timing for this work will also be provided by the City of Fishers Parks Department.
- Force Main Easements
HSEU does not permit trees to be placed within 10-feet from the mature drip line of the sanitary sewer force main. Therefore, the Utility will be reviewing force main easements this summer for tree encroachment. The initial review will collect tree location and species information. The Utility will be working with an arborist as part of the review. Trees identified as intrusive will be removed by the homeowner. A review of your plot plan will disclose pertinent easement information.
- A new dual cutting macerator to protect the pumps form blockage due to the abundance of “non-flushable” paper products (handy wipe type) injected in to the collection system. This item is slated for installation following repair of fractured force main.
- As temperatures rise, this facility and its close proximity to round-about is anticipated to become an odor issue at times. HSEU continues to evaluate and experiment with solutions to reduce the impact. This facility receives flow from over 7-miles away which when combined with high residence time gravity flow and force main components complicates mitigation efforts
The following work is being performed in the listed subdivisions:
Mainline Camera Work
-2019 Camera work will begin shortly
We will remove the sewer cleaning signs from the area as soon as the cleaning has been completed in that area. If the sign is still posted all of the cleaning has not been completed.
The notifications above are for our customer’s convenience and although we try to keep these up to date the best we can there may be work in other areas of our service area throughout the year
Why is this work important?
As waste-water networks age, the risk of deterioration, blockages, and collapses becomes a major concern. As a result, municipalities worldwide are taking proactive measures to improve performance levels of their sewer systems. Cleaning and inspecting sewer lines are essential to maintaining a properly functioning system; these activities further a community’s reinvestment into its wastewater infrastructure.
Mainline Camera Work
As mentioned in the sewer cleaning work description, aging waste-water systems need to be monitored to ensure the highest levels of productivity. To ensure the integrity of our system, we use in-line cameras to video over 430,000 feet of pipe every year.
Lateral Video Inspection
For the same reasons we video our mainline pipes, we inspect the lateral pipe running from residential and commercial properties to guarantee functionality and integrity.
