Effluent Export Pipeline Project - 2524SS2010

Project update: 5/24/23

Holiday Hours: Crews will be working on site until Friday, May 26, 2023 at 12:00pm.  The crew will return to working at the site at 7:00pm on Tuesday, May 30, 2023

The project began Monday, April 24, 2023.

Lane closure on SR28 between Sand Harbor and the Thunderbird Lodge that will result in travel delays from 7 pm Sunday nights through Fridays until 1:00 pm; both lanes of SR28 will be open for weekend and holiday periods.

The replacement project proposes to replace the remaining Segment 3 pipeline (13,700 linear feet) and all of the Segment 2 Pipeline (16,300 linear feet) beginning at the Spooner Pump Station and continuing south along SR‐28. These are the only remaining stretches of EEP along the east shore of Lake Tahoe that has not been replaced. Segment 3 experienced significant leaks in 2009 and 2014, and subsequent investigations confirmed progressive corrosion of this bell and spigot pipe with wholesale replacement required. A conditional assessment of Segment 2 determined that there is significant corrosion along this segment as well and full replacement is needed. Starting in April 2023, IVGID’s construction manager at risk (CMAR) will begin the replacement of the effluent pipeline. This will require a lane closure on SR28 that will result in travel delays from 7pm Sunday night through Friday afternoon; both lanes of SR28 will be open for weekend and holiday periods.
