As you may be aware, the sewer lining project on High Street, between Prairie and Sard which was originally scheduled for Friday, February 12, 2016 was delayed due to the condition of the pipe. The work is now scheduled for Friday, February 26, 2016. At this time, the City’s contractor Pipe Vision will line the pipe with a different method and material, which is softer and less likely to cause breakage in the pipe. This lining will dramatically increase the lifetime of the infrastructure without requiring full replacement of the line.
The work will take one day, approximately six to eight hours, to complete. Pipe Vision will provide the affected residents 24 hours advanced notice of the sewer lining to be performed. The notice will be a door hanger tag with the date and time of the lining. Please look for this notice.
During the work, the sewer lateral will be temporarily disconnected from the main sewer. To avoid sanitary sewer backups during the time of lining we ask that residents affected only use their toilet when absolutely necessary and do not use washing machines, dishwashers, bath tubs, showers and sinks.
Overuse of the sanitary service line will cause a sanitary backup to occur in the home during the lining process. Once crews have completed the lining, residents can resume regular sanitary sewer production.
Additional notices and changes to this schedule may be required as we continue through the project. For the most up to date information, please visit the City’s website www.cityofhighwood.org and sign up for email and text construction alerts by selecting the Notify Me button and “Newsflashes”.
