Over time, sanitary sewage pipes will deteriorate for a variety of reasons. Gas from sewage slowly eats away at the pipe material. Tree roots can also force their way into the pipe joints, which leads to sewage getting blocked, and can ultimately cause a large sewage backup into basements. Thankfully, these events are very rare in Vadnais Heights due to proactive maintenance activities. Lining the sewer pipe is a very effective way to restore and maintain pipes, which helps to keep them flowing freely for decades to come.

9/13/2023 – Initial Investigation The first phase of this year's Sanitary Sewer project has been completed. Pipe Services crews have been out inspecting and cleaning the Sanitary Sewer Manholes. The next step is to have Insituform Technologies review the videos and identify any potential problem areas as well as inspect and map service connections to the main. The expected week the lining will be done is now the first week in October.
