Project: Nicholas Street Sewer Extension

Omaha, Nebraska

The Nicholas Street Sewer Extension project was one of the first implementation projects of the City of Omaha Combined Sewer Overflow Control Program. The Nicholas Street Sewer Extension Phase I project extends three 108” diameter storm sewer pipes and a 24” sanitary pipe through an urbanized industrial corridor in downtown Omaha, Nebraska – helping to address basement back-up and street flooding issues in the Burt-Izard basin. The project was selected as the ACEC (American Council of Engineering Companies) Nebraska Excellence in Engineering 2014 Grand Award Winner, the highest honor extended to a Nebraska engineering firm. Since the Phase I project, Lamp Rynearson has continued to work on additional projects which are extending separated sewers further upstream in the basin.
