2016 Sewer Rehabilitation Project – Berkeley Estates & Canterbury ManorThis project consists of sanitary rehabilitation within the public side (City Right of Way) of both of these subdivisions. In the past, private side rehabilitation was conducted with lateral lining.
Robinson Pipe Services of Lorain, Ohio is under contract to perform the rehabilitation by the means of mainline chemical grouting of the sanitary mains and lateral interfaces. This process involves injecting grout from the inside of the pipe around leaking joints within the sanitary main, that reduces the amount of rainwater and groundwater entering the main, which is known as infiltration. This infiltration is the likely source for sanitary backups in the area.
Update: Project started in December 2016 and is currently working on punch-list items. View the Bid Tabulations
