Bishop Sewer Trunk Replacement Project Starting Construction Soon

Public Works News Release

work in progressBishop Sewer Trunk Replacement Project

The City of Bishop has contracted with White Rock Construction to construct the Bishop Sewer Trunk Replacement Project. The project will replace approximately 900 feet of 60-year-old Vitrified Clay Pipe sewer main from the intersection of First and Clarke Streets continuing to south end of Johnston Drive. The project will also include construction of an inter-tie between the City of Bishop and the Eastern Sierra Community Service District that will increase redundancy between the two wastewater treatment plants. Construction is anticipated to begin Monday, January 31, 2022.

What does this mean for you? While construction is active in the intersection of First and Clarke Streets, there will be temporary street closures to protect the public from open trenches and construction workers from traffic. There will also be at times, large pumps operating to bypass sewer mains around works areas. As construction is active in the Bishop Creek Canal and adjacent to it, the dirt road on either side of the canal may be temporarily closed to vehicles and pedestrians. This work is anticipated to be completed in roughly six weeks.

The City of Bishop and White Rock Construction thank the public in advance for their cooperation.
