The State Street Drainage basin is surrounded by Walnut Creek, Raleigh Blvd, New Bern Avenue and Fayetteville Street. The City of Raleigh has previously completed a condition assessment of sanitary sewer mains in this drainage basin and determined much of the water and sewer is in poor condition and highly critical. Approximately 60,000 - 80,000 linear feet of water main replacement and 60,000 - 80,000 linear feet of sewer main replacement are planned for this drainage basin over the next three to five years. The project will be designed and constructed in five phases.
The replacement and refurbishment of sewer lines in this area will reduce the risk of sanitary sewer overflows and provide a more reliable water system for the community. The replacement of waterlines will reduce the risk of pipe failure. These failures can cause damage to the environment if not managed.
