CIPP Sewer Line Rehabilitation Project
This year the Town will be rehabilitating approximately 13,700 linear feet of aged sanitary sewer with cured in place pipe (CIPP). CIPP is a well established industry standard practice that involves inserting a fabric tube saturated with polyester resins into the sewer main. Hot water or steam is then circulated through the tube to initiate the curing process. Upon cooling, the finished product will be a structurally sound, smooth, and water tight synthetic liner capable of extending the service life of the sewer by at least 50 years. Rehabilitating sewer mains by CIPP is typically much faster, less disruptive, and considerably less expensive than “open cut” excavations and repairs.
The sewer mains scheduled for rehabilitation this year consist of 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch, and 15 inch diameter pipes and are located primarily in the older parts of town. These sewer sections have historically proven to be problematic areas for infiltration, root intrusion, and blockages. Of the $592,000 budgeted for this project $191,000.00 was funded through an Environmental Protection Agency Special Appropriations Program grant. This will be the fifth project of this nature that the Public Services Department has undertaken. To date we have completed 42,063 linear feet of CIPP.
Notification of residents that will be affected by this years CIPP project will be made 24 hours in advance of work being performed. We ask that all services connected to the section of pipe(s) where work is being performed to refrain from excess water usage while workers are actively working the line and until connections have been re-established by crews.
