Sewer Line Replacements
Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is a less invasive method of sewer rehabilitation. The process requires little to no digging and significantly less time to complete than other repair methods. CIPP involves inserting a flexible liner inside the existing pipeline, inflating the liner, and exposing it to heat to dry and harden the resin inside. The liner essentially forms a smooth surface inside of the existing pipe, restoring it to near-new condition.

What to Expect
Water Shut-Offs & Reductions
- Residents will be asked to limit water and sewer use during the lining process.
- Property connections to the public sewer will be temporarily sealed off during the pipe lining.
- Using less water helps prevent water from filling up a private sewer line and backing up into a home or business.
- Residents will be notified at least 48 hours prior to lining activities beginning. Normal water and sewer use may resume once crews have left the work zone.
- Residents should expect these operations to last between 2 to 8 hours.
Unpleasant Odors May Be Present
- This smell will go away once the lining process is complete.
- A tip to prevent the odor from entering your home or business through the sewer is to fill any floor drains and infrequently used sinks with a small amount of water.
- This will collect in the bend in the drain, called a "P-trap", and block odors from the sewer.
- If the odor is already present, cover floor drains and open windows to allow ventilation. If the odor continues, phone or email the contacts on the contractor's construction notice.
