Insituform Technologies announced June 12 that it had secured contracts for approximately $2.9 million in water line rehabilitation projects, using its Insituform Blue potable water product line with the City of Monroe, Mich., and Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

In Monroe, Mich., the City is addressing problems with leaks, water main breaks and water quality by having Insituform rehabilitate 11,500 ft of 8-in. water main. The $2.3 million project includes the installation of 230 service connections using Insituform’s new iTAP robotic device that restores connections from inside the rehabilitated pipe without digging.

In 2007, Insituform renewed 1,900 ft of 8-in. water main with 33 service connections in Monroe as the City began a complete overhaul of its water system to stop leaks and water loss, increase capacity and improve hydraulics.

At Texas A&M, Insituform will rehabilitate 2,000 ft of 18-in. water line and 2,000 ft of 24-in. water line. The university turned to Insituform for its trenchless technology to address problems with the water lines in two areas with heavy traffic and high population concentrations. The university had used a dig-and-replace approach to address problems with some other water lines but wanted to provide the least disruption in the area, where the $568,000 in work will be done.

In Salt Lake City, Insituform used its Thermopipe product to rehabilitate 1,500 ft of 12-in., steel water line that was threatened by the weight of an interstate highway expansion above it.
