Work to rehabilitate the city’s sanitary sewer mains in the areas of Century Hill,
The technology utilized to repair and restore the sewer pipe is known as cured-in-place-pipe. This is trenchless technology that involves inserting a flexible liner into the existing sewer pipe and heating resin inside the liner to harden it in place. This results in repair of the sewer pipe without the need to dig a trench to reach the pipe.
“This trenchless method will eliminate tree loss, prevent the disturbance of nearby landscaping and avoid long-term traffic inconveniences,” Department of Public Utilities Wastewater Collection and Pumping Supervisor Tony Conn said. “It is a cost-effective and efficient way to repair underground pipelines. This method of sewer rehabilitation is widely used to repair aging sanitary sewers that are experiencing deterioration, tree root intrusion and groundwater infiltration. CIPP will add another 50 to 100 years of life to the sanitary sewer system.”
Any damage that may occur to public or private property during this project will be repaired and restored to pre-construction conditions by the contractor, Visu-Sewer.
“The contractor will be placing door hangers on residents’ doors 24 hours before the sewer pipe is lined in front of their homes,”
