Sewer Rehabilitation Work Scheduled for January
The City of Janesville will be conducting sewer rehabilitation work at various locations throughout the City beginning January 2, 2019, and will continue through until the end of April 2019. The project is part of an annual utility maintenance program. The contractor, Visu-Sewer, Inc. of Pewaukee, WI was awarded the contract to perform this work.
The contractor will clean and install a specialized cured-in-place lining material that adheres to the existing sewer main, lengthening the overall lifespan of these existing facilities. This work is performed utilizing trenchless technology and is less disruptive than traditional excavation methods. Those traveling near the project locations should be aware that this process often generates a large amount of steam during the curing process, which rapidly dissipates as the material cools.
Through traffic will be maintained during the installation process, although may be restricted to a single lane in each direction. For more information, please contact the City of Janesville Engineering Division at (608) 755-3172.
