In 2019, EBMUD rehabilitated more than 4,000 feet of large pipe along 3rd Street in Oakland. The old pipe was 60 years old and heavily corroded. EBMUD used a trenchless method where new pipe segments measuring eight feet in diameter were inserted into the existing pipe through strategically-located pits. This minimized excavation, odors, dust, and construction traffic.
As of December 2019, 3rd Street is re-opened to traffic following the completion of the major rehabilitation portion of the project. Some intermittent traffic control on 3rd Street will continue through early 2020 as EBMUD completes project inspections and re-paving.
