Davenport Seawall and Intercepter Sewer connection #15

The federally constructed underground interceptor sewer system that collects and drains storm water runoff in Davenport and Bettendorf, Iowa, is not performing as designed due to sediment deposits in the system. This has significantly restricted its carrying capacity which has contributed to repeat flooding of streets and low-lying areas during heavy rainfall events.

A contract was awarded to RB Construction, Sterling Heights, Mich., for constructing seven manholes and two bulkheads (to facilitate cleanout), and to perform cleanout along blocked portions of the interceptor sewer.
