Improving and preserving the infrastructure of the City of Dublin’s sanitary sewer system benefits all Dublin residents and property owners. Sewer lining is an investment in our community.
In 2020, Insituform Technologies, LLC, a contractor hired by the City of Dublin, will begin mobilizing and cleaning pipes in preparation for the installation of Cured in aPlace Pipe (CIPP). As part of this project, they will be installing CIPP in roughly 42,000 linear feet of 8-inch, 10-inch and 15-inch sanitary sewer.
- Sanitary sewer pipe lining is scheduled to take place the week of Monday, July 6, 2020, on Ashford Road, River Forest Road, Indian Hill Road and Bennett Court.
*There will be no work on Friday, July 3, due to the Independence Day holiday.
Please keep toilet lids closed during the cleaning process. Residents may also want to drape a heavy towel over your toilet bowls between the lid and the seat. On rare occasions, the cleaning process will send a column of air through the service line, causing the water in the toilet to splash out.
Once lining begins, some residents will need to reduce their water use for several hours during the process. City staff and/or Insituform Technologies will personally notify these residents ahead of time. The work is expected to occur over the next several months.
CIPP is a state-of the-art installation of flexible pipe into the existing clay tile pipe. Curing the pipe with very hot water or steam for several hours results in a hard, seamless plastic lining in the existing pipe. This process does not require excavation in most cases. CIPP will increase the life of the sanitary sewer pipe by 30 to 50 years and re-establish the integrity of the sanitary sewer system by reducing clean water infiltration.
