EBMUD construction on Coliseum Way in Oakland

Necessary utility repairs August to October 2022

OAKLAND - East Bay Municipal Utility District's (EBMUD) contractor began emergency repairs on the South Sewer Interceptor near 5900 Coliseum Way in Oakland. EBMUD’s contractor is excavating a 50- foot-long trench in the roadway to repair the sewer interceptor 12 feet below the street.
