Gorst Sewer Main Repair

Late Thursday afternoon, while Bremerton maintenance crews were investigating and troubleshooting a routine operational issue within the Gorst sewer pump station system, a system overpressure shattered a section of force main (pressure sewer pipe). No sewage spill occurred because of the configuration of the system which is encased within another pipe. Bremerton maintenance crews responded to the site, remained overnight and will continue a 24/7 presence while repairs proceed. Sewage flowing into the pump station is currently being transported by tanker truck to a collection point further downstream.  

“Given that this situation must be corrected as soon as possible, I have determined the appropriate course of action is to declare an emergency,” said Mayor Greg Wheeler. “This will enable Bremerton to focus any and all City resources necessary to address this issue, as well as provide the framework for requesting additional help from outside the City if necessary.”  

The City will coordinate repair work with Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), as the shoulder lane of SR-16 will need to be closed periodically to complete the repairs. The fractured sewer line runs generally parallel to SR-16.
