Town Of Moraga

Rheem Boulevard Sinkhole Update

(March 1, 2017) The winterization work on the 96-inch storm drain pipe under the sinkhole is still performing well. Periodic inspections of the pipe are made when conditions allow. The surface work to protect the sinkhole and control surface water flows into the sinkhole are working well, the biggest challenge has been keeping the drainage grates clear of leaves.  Agreements with affected utilities have been secured and work to obtain the required approvals to submit a final package to Caltrans for funding approval continue.  Once all the approvals have been secured the Town will advertise the project for bids to hire a contractor for permanent repairs. The work is still expected to be completed by the end of this summer.
