The City of Manhattan uses a sewer rehabilitation program to prevent groundwater from infiltrating the sewer system. Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is a sewer lining process that extends the useful life of sewer lines by installing a resin-impregnated tube into a deteriorated sewer. This process results in a seamless, jointless surface. It causes little disruption to customers because there is no digging involved.
In 2018, 21,000 feet of 8-inch CIPP liner will be installed at various locations, including the Bluehills neighborhood; from behind Target across Fort Riley Boulevard to the DeHoff area; Sunset to 17th south of Anderson; and Claflin to Anderson east of College. View a map of all the locations.
The city awarded a contract to SAK Construction for $486,000 to be paid from the Wastewater Fund.
