Utility is asking residents along West Morgan Ave. between Eighth Street and
14th Street, as well as residents and businesses near the alley between 11th
Street and 12th Street from Broadway to West Indiana Ave., to use particular
care next week when driving or walking those areas, as work is scheduled to
begin Monday, Jan. 14, on a sanitary sewer improvement project.
Technologies USA LLC will be installing a liner in the sewer mains using the
trenchless Cast In Place Pipe (CIPP) method. The new liner will reduce
infiltration, eliminate leaking joints, restore the structural integrity of
the aging pipes, and increase the flow capacity, resulting in many more
years of service.
Cleaning of the
pipe will take place during the day shift, and the lining process will be
done during the night shift, between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. The project is
scheduled to be completed by Tuesday, Jan. 22, weather permitting.
