Melbourne Avenue Wet Weather (Stormwater) Project

LMU’s multimillion-dollar Melbourne Avenue wet weather (stormwater) project began the week of February 4, 2019 and was completed on Dec. 15, 2021.

This project involved stacking two 10-foot diameter pipes under the roadway along Melbourne Avenue, from Eel River Avenue, east to 5th Street, and constructing a pump station at 1st and Melbourne.

The project was part of a federal requirement to reduce overflows of wastewater into the rivers during heavy rainfall. The pipes store water during heavy rains, then gradually release the water back to LMU’s sewage collection system to be treated at LMU’s wastewater plant.
