SCOPE OF WORK
- Sliplining will be used to rehabilitate the sewer. This consists of installing a smaller pipe into the larger existing pipe and grouting the space between both pipes.
- This process will restore structural stability to the existing sewer pipe while improving sewer flows through it.
- The contractor will excavate four construction pits along the pipeline route. To reduce the impact to the community and commuters, these areas will also serve as laydown areas to store equipment and materials.
- The work will be conducted in phases. The contractor will only operate two construction pits at any given time.
- Construction will take place Monday to Friday from 9 am until 3:30 pm.
- In order to complete the work on schedule, the contractor may work at night at some locations between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Prior notice will be given in those instances.
