Investigatory sewer work to determine conditions

News Image

Over the next month, the City's contractor, National Water Main, will be TV and cleaning, inspecting, and taking measurements of several sewer and drain lines throughout the City in preparation of upcoming sewer lining.

This work is part of the Trenchless Rehab program. Trenchless Rehab will provide a new, joint-less sewer pipe connection that minimizes root and water infiltration problems, improves flow, and provides for a more structurally sound pipe without the need for excavation. A notice will be sent to impacted Streets before this phase of work.

Impacted residents may experience bubbling from toilets.

Due to the unpredictable nature of this work, notice with specific dates and times of the work will not be distributed. No Parking signs will be posted 48-hours in advance. Please take note.

Impacted streets for the months of June are:

  • Cedar Street 
  • Rice Street
  • Rindge Ave
  • Dudley Street
  • Norris Street
  • Alberta Terrace
  • Harvey Street
  • Mass Ave
  • Sargent Street
  • Montgomery Street

The schedule is fluid and may change at any given time due to weather and other factors impacting the work.
