Update on sewer main rehabilitation lining project

Phase 4 of the citywide Sewer Main Rehabilitation Lining Project will begin in late February. This project consists of approximately 17 miles of sewer main rehabilitation using trenchless lining technology to minimize construction impacts to the public. The overall project duration is February to December of this year. The contractor will clean and inspect the sewer mains in the coming months. The sewer rehabilitation work usually takes one day to install, during which sewer service may be impacted. Additional advance notice will be distributed by the contractor several days prior to actual sewer lining work. Typical construction hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Occasional nighttime work may be necessary at certain locations.
