SMALL DIAMETER SANITARY SEWER RECONSTRUCTION WASTEWATER
WATER | RECONSTRUCTION | SMALL DIAMETER | MANHOLE
The Small Diameter Sewer Rehabilitation program installs structural liners in sanitary sewer lines in order to prevent structural failure and to restore the integrity of the pipe.
The work involves little interference to the accessibility of homes and businesses, though it may require sewer restrictions that limit the use of running water into the sewer lines including sinks, showers, flushing toilets, dishwashers and washers.
Coordinating with business have been a challenge during this project due to the heavier amount of coordination with the public but according to Project Coordinator Maya Hall, “Businesses and homeowners are genuinely appreciative of the efforts made by these crews.”
There has also been a new challenges Hall has never faced before in this project. “We receive so many calls regarding styrene odors, but we have a factsheet that I am able to mail to the homeowners if needed, giving a better explanation as to what it is they are smelling,” Hall said. “And to remind them that, no, they will not get cancer from it.”
Everything will be worth it in the end though when residents and the public will be presented with clean, restored sewers that will hold up for years afterwards.

“When COVID’s first wave hit in March, I was concerned with any water restrictions that could harm business to local owners and individuals needing to stay home. Luckily, we have a great team that addressed these concerns by meeting the needs of business and homeowners in the areas.”
