2023 Sanitary Sewer Lining Project

About the Project

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.

The City of Vadnais Heights awarded the 2023 Sewer Lining Project to Insituform Technologies at a bid price of approximately $165,000.

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.

Our contractor has identified all of the services and should have all the materials required on hand next week.  The current projected Start date is now 10/06/2023 or 10/09/2023 so start keeping an eye out for door hangers.
