Stormwater Pipe Rehabilitation Project Completed

October 15, 2013

The Engineering Department recently completed a stormwater pipe rehabilitation project. This project was performed in the Melmar neighborhood off of Marlyn Drive. Approximately 350 feet of corrugated metal pipe was repaired by lining the deteriorated bottom with a cement impregnated fabric. This liner is initially flexible which allows it to be inserted into existing pipes and secured into place. Following placement the fabric is saturated with water and cures to form a concrete lining for the pipe. This project was completed without any land disturbance to adjoining properties.

Now considered successful, this type of project will significantly impact repair work done on these kinds of pipes.
