Lakeside Sanitary Sewer Relocation Project
The Lakeside Sewer Relocation Project began in January 2021 and is complete! The City of La Porte, with Selge Construction and RQAW, replaced an almost 60-year-old clay tile sanitary sewer that served the homes along the shore of Pine Lake from Lane Street to Waverly Road. The new low pressure sewer line allowed the City to retire manholes and sewer main that, because of higher lake levels and erosion, had been in the water. This work has created a safe, efficient and reliable sewer system for the community. This $1.8 Million project was funded with the sewer and stormwater fees paid on the residential utility bill.
Monroe Manor Project
The City of La Porte, with HRP Construction and Abonmarche, replaced the existing combined sewer with a separate sanitary and stormwater sewer system. This work moved storm-related water from the sanitary sewer system and diverted the water into the Head Creek wetland basin (behind the Wastewater Treatment Plant on Boyd Blvd). Removing this water from the sanitary sewer eliminated the potential for surcharges with raw sewage to get onto the road and backup into homes. In addition to the sewer separation, a new water main, curbs, streets, and sidewalks was also be replaced. The more than $3 Million project was funded with the sewer and stormwater fees paid on your utility bill.

Southmoor Rd - 600 Block Flooding
The 600 block of Southmoor Rd struggled for years with flooding. The area is lower than the surrounding property resulting in stormwater (rain and melting snow) to drain in their backyards. In October 2021, the City of La Porte and Satoski Bros Excavating installed a system to remove the unwanted water and properly route it to the nearest stormsewer conveyance system. This $40K project was funded with the stormwater fee paid on the residential utility bill.
