CITY OF LOS ANGELES DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS
LOWER NORTH OUTFALL SEWER (LNOS) REHABILITATION PROJECT
PROJECT UPDATE – APRIL, 2008
The City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works is repairing many of its aging sewer lines. Part of this work includes the rehabilitation of a 3.5 mile segment of the 80-year old Lower North Outfall Sewer (LNOS) that runs through parts of Culver City. Culver City’s smaller sewers feed into City of Los Angeles larger diameter sewers, so it is important to keep them in good working condition. When completed, the LNOS will be more reliable and will reduce potential odors in your community.
The majority of the rehabilitation work is taking place inside the sewer tunnel to minimize impacts to your neighborhood, but some above-ground activities are necessary. Starting Tuesday, April 15, 2008 and continuing through Friday, April 18, 2008, the contractor will use the maintenance hole located near the intersection of Overland Avenue and Kelmore Street to clean a section of the sewer pipe. The sewer debris will be hydro-blasted to a location further upstream where it will be safely removed from the sewer. The sewer cleaning work will take place between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The contractor will set up and remove his equipment daily, and traffic control measures will be implemented accordingly.
Please be assured we have coordinated with the City of Culver City engineering and traffic departments prior to doing this work. City of Los Angeles project inspectors will carefully monitor the work to ensure that it is done as quickly, quietly, and safely as possible. However, if you have questions or need more information, please call the project’s community outreach representative, Vikki Zale, at (877) 700-3069. This hotline uses a message/pager system. When calling, please leave a message and Vikki will call you back as soon as possible
