Concrete Sewer Lining Projects

During the 2017 Construction Season there will be 2 separate Concrete Sewer Lining Projects. They will be depicted as the West Project and the East Project:

These projects will involve reconstructing or repairing manholes as needed, cleaning the sewers, installing a structural liner in the sewer, sealing the joint between private service laterals and the public sewer, and any restorations that may be necessary as a result of the work.

The actual installation of the structural liner normally requires less than 24 hours to complete for each pipe section. During this time, service lateral connections will be sealed off at the sewer main in the street. Once the liner is installed, the service lateral will be reopened and sewer use can return to normal. If a resident’s lateral connection will be impacted by the work, they will be asked to make limited use of their toilet facilities and refrain from doing laundry during the time period that the service lateral is sealed off. A few days prior to installing the liner, the contractor will place a notice on the resident’s door as to the actual date and time of the limited water use period.

Concrete Sanitary Sewer Lining – West Project

Project Update June 16, 2017


This week, the contractor lined the sewer on S. Comanche Ln from just south of Minot Lane to Crestwood Drive. All sewers to be lined have now been completed.

Next week the contractor will begin removing the surface bypass piping while finishing up on lateral grouting and manhole lining work.


As part of the City’s sanitary sewer maintenance program, the sanitary sewer from the intersection of S. Comanche Ln & Crestwood Dr to the Clean Water Plant will be rehabilitated using a trenchless lining process. The sewers to be lined range in size from 15 inches to 30 inches in diameter with a total length of approximately 9,700 feet.
The lining process does not involve the time consuming, disruptive, and expensive excavation that digging up and replacing the sewer would require. The project has been contracted to Visu-Sewer, W230 N4855 Betker Drive, Pewaukee, WI. Work is to begin on February 6 with the project completed by May 26.
