Abstract:

“Although the sewer has been here, don't upsize or work on it because, after all, this is my backyard.” This was the attitude of a group of homeowners along a portion of this gravity sewer replacement project. This local “not in my backyard” (NIMBY) group rallied together, fought against, delayed implementation and increased the cost to install a replacement sewer. Despite these efforts, however, they failed to stop the project from progressing to completion.
