Oaks of Clear Creek Sewer Line Project Could Cause Loud Noises

Project will increase diameter of sewer line to upgrade capacity

Contractors will soon be replacing decades-old sewage line in the Oaks of Clear Creek neighborhood as part of League City’s Capital Improvement Program. Crews will upgrade the current 12-inch cast-iron pipe with 15-inch high-density polyethylene pipe that will benefit residents for the next 50 to 60 years. Work will start on Willow Branch Drive and Washington Street and go 550 feet east to the intersection of Washington Street and Coleman Boylan Drive. Contractors are also replacing 1,050 feet of pipe from Willow Branch Drive and Washington Street to the intersection of Willow Branch Drive and Water Oak Drive.

This is a pipe-bursting project, which means the contractor will use an air pressure hammer to pull the new line through the old line. This is a trenchless technique that allows crews to replace the old line without having to first dig it up and remove it. It is faster and less expensive than the traditional method. There is also some noise associated with this technique. According to the contractor, residents within a 1.5-mile radius of the project area may hear a loud thumping noise starting Thursday, December 7 (tentatively). This will happen twice a week starting December 7 until December 22. Following a break for Christmas, the thumping noises will occur twice a week for two more weeks starting January 6. Keep in mind these dates are tentative and subject to change. The City will keep residents informed via the League City website and official social media channels.
