The City’s contractor, Lametti and Sons, Inc., has nearly completed the installation of the Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) liner sewer mains on Central Avenue South, Circle Drive East, Glenbrook Road, Grand Avenue, Huntington Ave South, and Shady Lane. The lining of the existing sewer main with a the Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) liner is a quick and economical process in lieu of replacing pipes by open excavation.
