The city is rehabilitating a portion of its public combined sewer lines using the Cured-In-Place Pipe process, scheduled to begin April 6. Lining work is scheduled to take place in May. This project is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 1.
During sewer rehabilitation, a liner is inserted into the public sewer that will seal the building sewer service connection, preventing it from flowing into the public sewer. When the contractor is rehabilitating the sewer line in front of your building, please limit water usage including in bathroom facilities and refrain from doing laundry or washing dishes. Also, any sump pumps that are connected to the combined sewer system should be disconnected during this period. When installation of the liner is complete, the contractor will reestablish flow from the building sewer service to the public sewer.
A 10-day notice will be provided to area residents prior to lining work. An additional notice will be placed on the front doorknob of affected buildings advising occupants 24 hours in advance of the specific date and time that the sewer lining work will be performed and the sewer service connection will be sealed. This work should take approximately 10 hours to complete at most locations. If you do not receive a notice, the process will not affect your building. “No Parking” signs will be posted in the area where the rehabilitation work will restrict parking.
