NapaSan Construction Zones

NapaSan conducts a regular sewer system maintenance program. You may see us on the streets, repairing, replacing or cleaning sewer lines or recycled water pipes. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we work to keep our system operating effectively! 

Refer to the information below to find out where our current construction projects are happening. If you have any questions or concerns, please call NapaSan at (707) 258-6000. 

Browns Valley Trunk Sewer Project

Project Manager: Robin Gamble Holley, rgamble@napasan.com

Project Background: The Browns Valley Trunk Project is designed to intercept wastewater from Browns Valley and Southwest Napa and divert the flow away from sewer lines that are over capacity via a new 3-mile pipeline that will deliver the wastewater to NapaSan for treatment.  For additional background information, visit our Browns Valley Trunk Project page.   

Current Construction Location: During the week of June 29th, water line work will continue on S. Coombs Street north of Imola Avenue. Expect parking restrictions and one-way traffic control. No work will take place on Friday, July 3rd. 

During the week of July 6th, a utility locating crew will be working on S Coombs Street, Sycamore Street, and the Highway 29 under-crossing. Please anticipate parking restrictions and one-way traffic control.

Summer 2020 Sewer Rehabilitation Project

Project Manager: Simon Kobayashi, skobayashi@napasan.com

Project Background: The Summer 2020 Sewer Rehabilitation Project project is essential to reduce the amount of maintenance calls and the potential for sewer overflows in your area and is necessary for the operation of our sewer system. 

Nu-Line Technologies, Inc. will begin construction in April and continue through October. All work will be done in compliance with the Construction Site Requirements set forth in the Napa County Shelter-in-Place Order to ensure worker safety.

The five primary project areas are: Pear Tree Lane, Redwood Road, Jefferson Street, the Old Sonoma Road Highway Crossing, and Browns Valley Road. The project areas were selected due to the deteriorated condition of aging sewer pipes. NapaSan will be repairing or replacing these aging sewer pipelines that allow stormwater and groundwater to infiltrate into the sewer system. Reducing this infiltration helps to decrease the possibility of sewer overflows and spills. Approximately 340 sewer laterals will be repaired or replaced as part of this project. Through this project, 5.6 miles of pipeline (approximately 2.1% of the total sewer system) will be rehabilitated or replaced. 

As always, NapaSan will work to minimize negative impacts to pavement conditions whenever possible throughout this project. Wherever possible, pipelines will be rehabilitated using cured-in-place pipe, which is less invasive to streets than pipe bursting or open cut methods. Trenchless methods also minimize costs, construction time, and traffic disruptions compared to traditional open-cut trenching. 

Current Construction Location: During the week of June 29, 2020, sewer main rehabilitation work will take place on Beard Road between Trancas Street and Piedmont Avenue, Austin Way, Larkin Way, Laurel Street, Easum Drive, and First Street between Easum Drive and Chelsea Avenue.  Lateral rehabilitation will occur on La Homa Drive, Concord Court, Marsh Court, and Marsh Drive. The contractor will be conducting pipebursting and cured-in-place pipe rehabilitation of sewer mains.
