Two Sewer Lining Projects are currently underway in the City. Sewers are lined to structurally renew the sewer pipe. Lining is less disruptive and less expensive than replacing sewers by digging up the old sewer pipes and installing new pipe. Lining is used to renew both sanitary sewer and storm sewer pipes.
The 2013 Sewer Lining Project should be complete about the end of July. The 2013 Sewer Lining Project includes the lining of 5,241 feet of sanitary sewer and 5,916 feet of storm sewer at a total cost of $317,285. Currently the 2013 project contractor, Pipevision Products Inc., has completed lining 90% of the sanitary sewers and 50% of the storm sewers in the contract.
The 2014 Sewer Lining Project started in late June with cleaning and televising of the sewer pipes in the contract. Lining under this contract is scheduled to start in early August, and is expected to be complete late in October 2014. The 2014 Sewer Lining Project includes the lining of 6,316 feet of sanitary sewer and 5,842 feet of storm sewer at a total cost of $712,071. The 2014 Sewer Lining Project contractor is Insituform Technologies USA, LLC.
The 2014 Sewer Lining Project is more expensive per foot of lined pipe than the 2013 project because it includes larger storm sewer pipes (36” and 42” diameter). The majority of this larger pipe is 2,377 feet of 36” storm sewer pipe formerly under the jurisdiction of the Fountain Head Drainage District.
