Sanitary Sewer Improvements

Sanitary ManholeThe City of Geneva will be making sanitary sewer improvements starting in mid-January for the Geneva East subdivision and a few other locations throughout the community. Maps of the various work locations can be found on this page.

Visu-Sewer, the City's contractor, will be cleaning and televising sections of the sewer system. Crews will then be rehabilitating manhole structures and performing grouting work to stop groundwater infiltration from entering the system. Sanitary sewer lining also will take place in certain sections to correct structural problems.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of May.

What To Expect

Residents living near the project areas will receive a notification in advance prior to construction starting in their neighborhood. Work will generally be taking place between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The improvement projects should not greatly impact adjacent residents. Crews will not need to enter homes, but the City requests residents assist Visu-Sewer personnel access to fenced yards containing sewers.

People may hear noises or gurgling sounds from their plumbing during the cleaning/televising process.


Project updates will be distributed through the City's Pardon The Progress blog. People can subscribe to receive future blog updates via Notify Me.

The project is necessary to keep sanitary sewer lines in proper working condition. The City appreciates the public's cooperation during the coming months.
