2017 Sanitary Sewer Lining
The City’s contractor, Lametti and Sons, Inc., began the cleaning and televising of the sewer mains on Central Avenue South, Circle Drive East, Glenbrook Road, Grand Avenue, Huntington Ave South, and Shady Lane, this week, in preparation for the lining of these pipes. The lining of the existing sewer main with a Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) liner is a quick and economical process in lieu of replacing pipes by open excavation. This process prevents major traffic disruptions and health hazards from potential exposure to raw sewage. The 2017 project proposes to line approximately 5,150 feet of sewer main throughout the City. The contractor began lining on Glenbrook Road late this week.
