Insituform will manage locally owned subcontractors throughout the project to provide cleaning and closed-circuit television inspection, manhole replacement and rehabilitation.

Insituform CIPP is a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe used to rehabilitate pipes ranging in diameter from 6 to 96 in. Suitable for repair of sanitary sewers, storm sewers and force mains, Insituform CIPP extends the life of existing infrastructure by approximately 100 years. Rehabilitating sewer pipelines with Insituform CIPP reduces infiltration, restores structural integrity and increases flow capacity without disruption to communities, typically at a lower cost than dig and replace solutions.
