Sanitary Sewer Lining Project
The 2017 Sanitary Sewer Lining Project involves cleaning and lining approximately 40,850 linear feet of existing clay sewer pipe with a cured in-place pipe liner. The area chosen for the 2017 sewer lining project includes sections of sanitary sewer pipe is shown on the map below. This project generally takes 2 to 3 months to complete once construction begins.
The Utilities Division identified the sewer pipes in these areas as being in serious need of cleaning and lining because they are significantly obstructed by roots. Cleaning and lining the pipes restores pipe structural integrity and flow less expensively and less disruptively than excavating and replacing the existing pipe. Pipe lining is also an effective tool in reducing inflow and infiltration (I & I) because groundwater can easily get into old pipes, particularly those that have been penetrated by roots.
