Webster plans to rejuvenate old sewer lines
Instead of digging up some of its old sanitary-sewer pipes, the City of
Webster plans to save time and money with a technology that re-lines them,
says Shannon Hicks, the city's Director of Public Works.
The proposal, which will come before the City Council in January, is to use
a process called "cured-in-place pipe." The process re-coats old pipes with
resin, leaving the pipe slicker so that it still has the same volume
capacity, Hicks says.
"We'll be in and out of there in a week, whereas we'd be out there months
[if we were] digging up the road," Hicks says of the approximately $300,000
Hicks plans to use the project on sewer lines along Texas Avenue, Medical
Center Boulevard, and Old Galveston Road.
