November 14, 2022 – Residents throughout the city will see the beginning of the Concept 5 Sewer Improvement Plan come to life as crews from Insituform install cured-in-place pipe lining in City sewer lines that is intended to repair existing cracks, reduce inflow and infiltration (I&I), and extend the overall life of the sewer system.
Lining crews have begun working in the northwest corner of the city and will move from west to east in quadrants until all areas have been completed. Ahead of lining placement, crews from Monchilov Sewer Services will clean City sewer lines to prepare the area for work. (Click the map above for a larger PDF version, including a quadrant-by-quadrant breakdown of lining locations.)
Contractors will be communicate directly with residents in areas where the work is being performed.
The entire cleaning and lining process is expected to last approximately 12 months. Crews will be working in the roadway, so motorists are asked to exercise caution while driving in areas where work is underway.
For a map of locations where crews will be cleaning, as well as more information on the Concept 5 Sewer Improvement Plan, can be found at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/floodresponse.
