About the Project

This project is part of the planned sewer maintenance program. Inspections in 2014 identified corrosion in the 70+ year-old-pipes. Analysis identified a need to rehabilitate the sewer lines and that relining is a lower-impact and lower-cost alternative to digging and replacing them.

To minimize the effect that lining has on downtown businesses and residents, the work will occur at night between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. The sewer line to properties in these areas will be temporarily blocked for up to 8 hours while the lining is installed. Please avoid activities such as flushing the toilet, showering/bathing or washing laundry/dishes as this will cause a sewer backup. Advance notice will be given on exact dates and times of lining work that will impact your property.
