2018 Sewer Relining Project

2018 Sewer Relining Project

This year the City worked with Insituform Technologies Ltd. to repair some of the heavily damaged sewer lines within the City using what is called No-Dig Technology. This years project included areas on 1st Ave, 3rd Ave and Columbia Street.

Advantages of No Dig Technology:

• Rehabilitation of sewer lines utilizes Cured-In-Place Pipe Technology
• Provides a full structural liner for the sewer
• Reduces infiltration of ground water
• Reduces exfiltration of sewage to the environment
• Liner is designed for a 50 year Life span!

This year alone, No-Dig technology has saved the Citizens of Melville close to an estimated $685,000! Traditional sewer main replacement and asphalting would cost approximately $685,000. This No-Dig project cost came to $115,000.
