To protect its streets from being torn up due to sewer service line failures, the city introduced a new multi-year project in 2015 to strengthen privately owned sanitary sewer lateral pipes.
Contractors use a no-dig method to install a new pipe inside the existing lateral pipe from the sewer main to a point just beyond the street edge. This technique has been shown to strengthen pipes and reduce the chance of failure.
2020 Project Area
The city has budged $650,000 for the 2020 project from the Sanitary Sewer Fund.
