Rheem Boulevard Sinkhole Repair Update - August 14, 2017

The sinkhole and permanent storm drain repair work is progressing on schedule. Although the sinkhole was temporarily filled to stabilize the spaghetti bowl of utilities, the project is continuing with trench shoring installation to support the earth walls while the existing 96-inch damaged corrugated metal pipe is removed and replaced with reinforced concrete pipe to channel Laguna Creek. Thirty-six 48-inch diameter holes are currently being drilled on both sides of the pipe to a depth of 32 feet to install steel I-Beams which will support metal plates to serve as the trench shoring system. Please visit the project webpage for additional information or contact the Town hired Project Construction Manager Mike Hagerty at phone number (408) 332-7331.
