2017 Sanitary Sewer Lining Project
Current Status ( October 9, 2017)Preparatory sewer cleaning work is scheduled to start on October 10, 2017. Sewer lining work will take place approximately 3-4 weeks after preparatory work has been completed or most likely during the month November. If sewers are to be lined in your neighborhood, a door hanger will be provided the day before actual lining work is to begin on the sewer in front of your residence. The contractor will be passing out the door tags. Please check your front door for these door tags so that you have advanced warning when the lining will take place. This will provide the information you will need as well as specific dates in which the construction and restrictions will take place. A sample of the door hangers are shown in the links below.
The sanitary sewer lining project will take place in various locations across the City beginning in September. The locations of the sewers to be lined are shown in the Location Exhibit link below. This work will consist of a process called "cured-in-place-pipe lining" (CIPP) which will be utilized to reconstruct certain sections of badly deteriorated sewer. The process is done without expensive, disruptive excavation, such as, digging up and replacing old pipeline. The lining process includes inserting a specially designed tube into the existing sewer, which is then formed to the existing pipe, creating a watertight, smooth surfaced, long lasting pipe within the old sewer.
It is important to note that we will need the cooperation of residents whose homes are connected to these sewers, which will be lined. As the sewer goes through the lining process, residents will be asked to limit use of toilet facilities, and refrain from doing laundry. Specific information about these restrictions will be forthcoming as the project start date approaches.
