Investing in Aging Infrastructure: City Rehabbing Portions of Sewer System

Here is an update on an important infrastructure project for the city. Since the city announced this in the fall, I am told work on the first phase of the lining work wrapped up last week. A second project is planned for 2024.

From the neighborhood letter

Upcoming Sewer Maintenance

Visu-Sewer has been contracted by the city to rehabilitate the mainline sanitary sewer that your property is connected to. The rehabilitation process will include high-pressure cleaning of the sanitary sewer, and then installation of a cured in-place liner inside the sewer main. The liner renews the existing sanitary sewer main to the condition of a new pipe without the inconvenience of conventional digging.


The project will be completed in two phases. The first phase will consist of high-pressure cleaning and televising of the sanitary sewer. This work is anticipated to begin October 24th and will continue for approximately 4 weeks. The second phase is the installation of the liner. It is anticipated that the second phase will be completed by the end of the year.
