2021 CIPP Sewer Rehabilitation

The sanitary sewer system is over 60 years old and at the end of its useful life. The Eastgate neighborhood has specifically been an issue in recent years. Video inspections of the sewer in the surrounding area show substantial deterioration and the need for rehabilitation. The Public Works Department has chosen to line these sewers as the method of rehabilitation. Lining, also called Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP), is a rehabilitation method that inserts fabric inside the old pipe, then inflates and cures the fabric up against the host pipe. The result is a new pipe, structurally non-reliant on the host pipe, with a useful life in excess of 50 years. 

Please check back for further updates on this project as the year progresses.
