Recently Completed Projects
2016 Sewer Rehabilitation Project
This project consisted of sanitary rehabilitation within the public side (City Right of Way). In the past, private side rehabilitation was conducted with lateral lining. Robinson Pipe Services of Lorain, Ohio was under contract to perform the rehabilitation by the means of mainline chemical grouting of the sanitary mains and lateral interfaces. This process involved 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.
2017 Pavement Crack and Joint Seal
The City of Westlake hired Aero-Mark Inc. to preform crack sealing on various asphalt roadways throughout the City, this project has been completed as of June 2017. The sealant was applied to cracks in the pavement to prevent the migration of water into the pavement, which during freeze cycles damages the roadway. This is another cost effective preventative maintenance technique used by the City to maintain quality road surfaces for the traveling public.
