Beginning the week of September 5, 2017 work will begin on the Central Interceptor Cured in Place Pipe Project.

The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the old gravity sewer main along SR305 with a new cured in place liner.  The work will occur in 2 phases.

Phase I – Beginning the week of September 5, 2017 – work will include bypass pumping sections of the sewer main and videoing the sewer lines with remote equipment.  Followed by pressure cleaning and vacuuming out debris and sediments out of the manholes using a large vactor truck.

Expect equipment in the vicinity of Nordness and SR305, Tollefson and SR305, Johnson Rd. and SR305, and some noise.  Other equipment may be used behind the shoulder of SR305.

Phase I Work is to occur during the day between 9 am to 4 pm.

Phase II- The contractor will return approximately 4 weeks later for Phase II work – for the installation of the cured in place Pipe Liner.

Work is expected to take 2-3 weeks and some work will occur at night between 7 pm and 7 am Monday through Friday.  Bypass pumping of the sewer using generators will be required to complete the work.

Anticipate work at night and some traffic lane shifts and shoulder diversions on SR305.  You may also notice lights off the roadway on SR305 during night work.

The City of Poulsbo thanks you for your patience during this project.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Project Engineer Dean Zavack, or Project Inspector Joe Smith at (360)779-4078.


The Contractor “Harbor Pacific” will be excavating for the Village Lift Station Retrofit the week of July 24th to August 10th.  The 28-foot deep excavation for the wet well repair will require the installation of sheet pile shoring, which will be pressed into the ground to the correct depth.   This may have an impact along businesses in the vicinity of the existing Lift Station, see map below.

The work will be done with heavy excavation and shoring installation equipment intermittently during the day between the hours of 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM.  Anticipated workdays are Monday through Friday.  The compaction equipment may be transmitting vibrations to adjacent properties and businesses along 7th Ave. NE which may be temporarily disrupting to the residences and businesses in this area.  Please, check or stabilize objects stored on the floor, shelves, or in cabinets to protect them against the possibility of movement caused by vibrations.

I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Engineering office at (360) 779-4078 or myself at (360) 394-9736 or Joe Smith, Senior Field Inspector (360) 620-8661.

Thank you for your patience.

The City of Poulsbo is advertising for bids from contractors for the Poulsbo Village Pump Station Upgrade and the Liberty Bay Pump Station Improvements Project.

The project involves the upgrading of two existing sewer pump stations. The work is separated into two schedules, one each for the stations.

The Liberty Bay PS Upgrades will consist of the expansion of the lift station to meet current and future demands within the basin. Existing pump equipment will be replaced including all pumps, valves, and controls and the electrical pedestal/generator transfer switch will be replaced.

The Village PS Upgrades will consist of the replacement of existing pump equipment including all pumps, valves, and controls. Pump controls will be installed above ground and the float system will be upgraded to a transducer based control system with the floats as the backup.

Improvements will repair ground water intrusion and increase capacity.

The Engineer’s construction estimate for this project is:

  • Village PS = Sch A = $949,000.00
  • Liberty PS = Sch B = $627,000.00
