Work Begins on St. Petersburg Sewers
Work is scheduled to begin in the Bahama Shores and Coquina Key neighborhoods Monday (Jan. 9).
ST. PETERSBURG – Work to line aging sanitary sewer collection mains and city sewer laterals is scheduled to begin Monday (Jan. 9) in the Bahama Shores and Coquina Key neighborhoods.
The work, which is part of Mayor Rick Kriseman’s infrastructure plan, the work will help extend the life of sanitary sewer mains and prevent groundwater infiltration from entering the city’s sewage collection system. Depending on weather, the $3.2 million lining project is expected to be completed by September.
Insituform Technologies will reline 8-inch to 12-inch sanitary sewer collection mains and city sewer laterals to homes in the affected neighborhoods using a cured-in-place pipe lining process, which involves little to no digging compared with the traditional “dig and replace” pipe repair. CIPP instead uses pump-around pumping, cleaning the existing pipe, closed-circuit TV inspection, pipe lining, and restoration of the right-of-way.
Residents will be informed by door hangers before the start of each phase of the project and are encouraged to keep water usage at a minimum during active construction. Work is expected to begin about 8 a.m. each day. Local access will be maintained during the project.
Residents who have questions regarding the relining project should contact Robert Ecklund, city of St. Petersburg Engineering Construction Division, at (727) 893-7975 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
