The Backstory of Sacramento’s Arcade Creek

Arcade Creek has the largest drainage basin of all the local streams. It is 16.2 miles long and its basin area is about 19,000 acres or 29.7 square miles. It flows from Orangevale, northeast of Greenback Lane and Kenneth Avenue to the Sacramento River via the Natomas East Main Drainage Canal. The creek is still partially bordered with blue interior and valley oaks. There are scattered places with Fremont Cottonwood, small willows and Oregon Ash. Because of the natural and open spaces, native vegetation continues in some areas, providing habitat for wildlife. Once this habitat was abundant; today it is

Sacramento’s Study for Grease Control in Sewers

The Sacramento Sewer District recently conducted a survey which was initiated to assist with findings pertaining to the effect grease and oils have on the sewer system. The Study was called the Grease Impact Assessment Project.  The physical condition of the collection system has a significant impact on the amount of grease that accumulates in the sewer.  Obstructions, such as roots, allow the wastewater to slow down, letting the oil accumulate on the pipe wall. The sewer design standards are functional for normal flow volumes, but have low velocities in low flow conditions that contribute to grease accumulation on the sewer

Sacramento’s Clean Water Project

Construction of the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade, also known as, the EchoWater Project, is expected to cost a total of $2 billion and will take place over eight years. Once completed, the wastewater discharges from the treatment plant will meet new state water quality requirements to reduce discharges of ammonia, nitrates and other pollutants. The existing wastewater plant, which serves about 1.4 million people and currently provides secondary treatment, is one of the largest sources of ammonia and nitrate pollution to the San Francisco Bay Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Estuary. The record $1.6 billion in low interest loans for the

Sacramento Sewer Building Codes for Flat Spots

Sacramento building codes require that all drainage systems have a minimum grade of ¼ inch per foot. This means that for every foot the drainage pipe travels, it drops in grade ¼ inch. A flat spot is a section of drain line that has no grade, up or down. A ‘belly’ in the line means that the line dips down and then back up before it resumes the proper grade downhill. The belly will hold water in the line at all times. Both situations can cause line stoppages. In a newer home, both are caused by improper piping installations. There

City of Millbrae Raises Sewer Rates

Residents of Millbrae will sustain an increase to their sewer bill.  Members of City council voted this week for the much needed raise, due to the cost of mandatory sewer infrastructure repairs.  This change is required, in part, due to an ever aging underground infrastructure, but mainly due to the City’s obligation to pay for water laden with bacteria that leaked into the bay over 5 years ago.  This change will be implemented immediately and will increase the monthly bill structure by approximately $15.  The current plan has yearly increases scheduled through 2019.  While some were dismayed, many residents in

A Sewer Connection for Lincoln and Auburn

The Sewer Main in Auburn is under renovation.  The original plans to do away with this collection site are underway, just a bit later than expected.  The plan is to install a new pump carrying wastewater through a pipeline into the nearby City of Lincoln. Currently, the City is hard at work removing bedrock to pave way for this pipeline connection for Lincoln and Auburn.  Area residents can expect completion of the project by the end of August.  Since June, there have been various cost deviations from the planned budget, with adjustments to the final cost which now totals $77.8

Rainy Season and Sewer Drainage Systems

Many of us are experiencing a rainy season now that summer is in full swing.  Along with the sunny delights and fanfare this time of year brings, there is also a need to think about the proper functioning of our drainage systems where we live.  It is important to know to what extent a drainage issue is prevalent.  In order to do this, a qualified fully licensed professional is needed for drain pipe cleaning. This will also maximize your awareness of the health of the pipelines in your home.  Here are a few suggestions when seeking the help of an

Sewer and Water 101

Summer is indeed here in all its glory.  We know that means rainfall is here, too.  In fact, in many parts of the Country we have had record setting storms.  Precipitation can heavily contribute to an overloaded sewer system.  As a nation, we have over 700 communities that utilize combined sewer systems.  There are some Cities that have separate sewer systems but this is no small financial investment.  Even so, municipalities have the burden of making sure these systems are functioning. It can pose a health risk and even more financial strain if they are not. There are small contributions

Sacramento’s Pipeline Pinhole Leaks

It’s true that there are many dimensions to California’s underground infrastructure, in general. But there’s something else to consider, as well, Sacramento. What about homes built prior to the 1960’s? If you have an older home, chances are it was constructed with galvanized pipe. This is essentially steel pipe protected with a layer of Zinc which will eventually corrode the pipe. This can cause a pitting corrosion or pinhole leaks through the pipe which can look like this: This type of corrosion can be difficult to detect as the damage occurs from the inside out, and quickly, at that. This
