Digging the area for a brand-new pipe when your old sewer line is damaged can be very expensive. Just ask the Northwestern Water and Sewer District. They recently received low-interest loans from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to completely remodel the sewer lines in the Millbury service area. The rehabilitation project is meant to reach out several miles to pipes located in the Toledo area. The total cost of this project that started up in April is $1.125 million dollars.
The project is going to fix the leaks in the sewers and line the manholes. The Northwestern Water and Sewer District hopes that everything can be tightened up so that they aren’t filled up with storm water any longer.
The district also has plans for building a two-million-gallon storage basin located on a two-acre site near Wise Street. This basin will collect the excess sanitary sewage and storm water temporarily when heavy rain occurs prior to its release for treatment in Oregon.
Tom Statler, an engineer from the Northwestern Water and Sewer District, stated that doing so should help them lower the peak flow of water and keep it down below five million gallons per day.
No Dig Repair
Obviously, when you need your sewer pipes repaired you aren’t going to have a bill as large as Ohio’s water and sewer district. However, it can be very expensive depending on the technique that is used.
Which Method to Use When Your Sewer Pipes Need Repair
There are basically two options that you can use when it comes to replacing your old sewer pipes. You can use the traditional method which includes digging a new trench, destroying your landscape, and installing brand new pipes which can take several days to complete. In the meantime, you and your family will have to find somewhere else to stay.
With the trenchless sewer line repair method there is no digging involved, no mess in your front yard, and no need to make plans to stay elsewhere. The job is typically completed in 24 hours or less. It is also much more affordable than the traditional way of replacing pipes and it can last much longer.
With trenchless sewer repair, a new pipe is placed within your old pipe using a liner known as a CIPP or cured-in-place pipe. This flexible tube is either pulled into the damaged pipe or blown into it and inflated, filling up all the damaged areas.
This innovative liner can last as long as 50 years before it needs to be replaced. It can help repair even the most damaged pipes and it will help save you both time and money when compared to the traditional method of pipe repair.
