Sewer Separation Project

Cass St. 2In accordance with the federally-mandated CSO (Combined Sewer Overflow) control project, the City of Dearborn will be separating the current single line sewer system into two lines, one for sanitary sewers and one for rainwater.

In order to do this, the City must remove pavement and dig down to the current sewers and install new sewer lines and new water mains. Old sanitary leads will be replaced with new PVC pipe from the City’s sewer to approximately 5 feet behind the curb, leading to each house.

The CSO project is expected to be complete in 2021. Here’s a letter sent to residents with more information about the conclusion of the project.

If a project will specifically impact your home, such as by preventing access to your driveway for a day, a notification letter will be placed on or near your front door.

If you have questions regarding the CSO project, please call Construction Engineering Technician Dylan Abbas for Area A at 313-801-8575, or Project Engineer Soud El-Jamaly at 313-801-8578.
