Water company sliplining Alameda Interceptor Pipe for wastewater

Residents who have witnessed the arrival of 42-inch wide, 200-foot long pipes along Grand Street and Clement Avenue this week are seeing the beginning of an East Bay Municipal Utilities District (EBMUD) project to slipline a major wastewater pipe called the Alameda Interceptor Pipe.

The workers pictured above have been busy this week taking down a set of non-descript graffiti-ridden buildings at 2100 Clement Ave. They are making way for a condominium complex. The buildings on the site once housed workshops for Pacific Bridge Company, one of the prestigious “Six Companies” that built the Hoover Dam.
