Throughout the summer you’ll see crews using a method called Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP), which is an efficient, cost-effective way to rehabilitate the City’s aging infrastructure and save residents money on sewer utility fees.

CIPP is a specialized process where crews reline the existing pipes with a felt liner that’s saturated with epoxy, then inflate and cure it. This treatment means the City won’t have to dig up the roads, and has minimal disruption to residents. It also allows for longer pipe section repairs.

This summer, crews will be using CIPP on 72 sewer pipes and 24 storm water pipes. The life span for CIPP is 50 years.
