Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project to Begin in Early July

Work will Impact Maplebrook South, Huntington and Century Hill Areas

The City of Naperville informs residents that work to rehabilitate the City’s sanitary sewer service lines in the East Highlands area will begin in early July. This work is anticipated to be complete in this area by May 2013. Residents will be notified via door hangers within a two-week timeframe of the project start dates and details that would affect their individual residence.

The City’s rehabilitation process involves the installation of sanitary sewer service line cleanouts, followed by a thorough inspection and cleaning. The City has contracted with Performance Pipelining, Inc., for the pipelining process that follows the cleaning and inspection. Using robotic machinery, crews from Performance Pipelining will insert an epoxy-treated liner into the existing sanitary service line. The lining will then be inflated to the diameter of the host pipe and hardened using steam to form a pipe-in-a-pipe. This work will eliminate groundwater and rainwater from entering the sanitary sewers, extend the life of existing pipes by several decades and eliminate root intrusion or other problems in that section of sanitary service lines.

Residents will experience minimal interruption in service due to this project. For more information, including a downloadable map of affected residences, downloadable brochure and frequently asked questions, visit
