Sewer & Stormwater Rehabilitation Projects for 2022

We are preparing for another robust year of sewer and stormwater line improvements and replacements.  This work will include relining and replacing sections of our sewer and stormwater mains, along with replacing manhole covers and installing rain gardens.  We utilize two different methods for sewer and stormwater main rehabilitation: Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) relining and open dig replacement.  Open dig replacement is how these improvements were traditionally done, but we have found CIPP to be more cost effective and less disruptive to property owners and pedestrians.  However, there are times when replacement is the only option, like changing the diameter of the pipe.  

Property owners in these project areas will receive direct notification (i.e., letter or email) prior to the beginning of construction impacts, and the actual property will receive a door hanger 48 hours in advance of the work requiring service interruption.  The following streets are scheduled for rehabilitation work in 2022:

Replacement Locations Boundary Start Date Impacts  Completion Time
North Ave  Derway to Westward  TBD but will be Summer  Traffic  TBD
Lakewood Pkwy  Birchwood to #50  TBD but will be Summer  Traffic  TBD
