In conjunction with the village’s ongoing sanitary sewer rehabilitation program the village is awarding a contract to Visu-Sewer of Missouri LLC for completing 1600 feet of 8 and 10 inch cured in place pipe.
A cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is a trenchless rehabilitation method used to repair existing pipelines. It is a jointless, seamless pipe lining within an existing pipe. As one of the most widely used rehabilitation methods, CIPP has applications in sewer, water, gas, and chemical pipelines ranging in diameter from 0.1 to 2.8 meters (2–110 inches).
The process of CIPP involves inserting and running a felt lining into a preexisting pipe that is the subject of repair. Resin within the liner is then exposed to a curing element to make it attach to the inner walls of the pipe. Once fully cured, the lining now acts as a new pipeline.
The project is being particularly funded by the St. Clair County Community Grant Program.
