The Department of Water Management is responsible for operation, maintenance, evaluation, rehabilitation, and improvement of the sanitary sewer system throughout the City of Durham. As part of Water Management's ongoing efforts, this area was identified as warranting evaluation and design work for the improvement of the system. The sanitary sewer mains in this area are either along a streambank or traverse private property which makes them challenging to maintain.
