City of Oshkosh’s Manhole Rehabilitation Program gets underway

The city of Oshkosh continues its efforts to minimize clear water passage into the sanitary sewer systems this week. The city recently awarded a contract to PTS Contractors, Inc. to begin repairs on more than 600 manholes starting Monday, Oct. 29.

Currently, too much clear water, water which does not need to be treated, is finding its way to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The bulk of the project will be on the northeast side of the city, north of the Fox River and east of Jackson Street. With colder temperatures on the way, the goal is to fix as many manholes as possible prior to winter’s interruption.

Repairs scheduled to be performed during this project include the switching of old castings and/or covers, as well as some sections of manholes being replaced or repaired. All roads will remain accessible during the repair work. However, Oshkosh residents are asked to please be cautious when approaching a construction area.

The project is expected to be completed by June 28, 2013. For more information, please visit the city’s website at or contact the Public Works Department at (920) 236-5065.
