Company will install nearly 45,000 ft of CIPP under the contract
Insituform Technologies, Inc. has announced that it has been awarded a $17.9 million contract for the Sacramento Area Sewer District. Work on the project, which is scheduled to begin in June 2009, is expected to be completed in September 2010. Insituform plans to install nearly 45,000 ft of medium- and large-diameter Insituform CIPP under this contract award.
“We are pleased to work with the Sacramento Area Sewer District as they rehabilitate their underground infrastructure. The experience of our project management team is ideally suited to complete large-scale projects like this and we will work directly with our customer to ensure that their requirements and expectations are met,” said Joe Lane, Insituform West Region general manager. He continued, “We have been working in the Sacramento area for over ten years and look forward to additional work as the city and county continue to rehabilitate their systems.”
"The Sacramento Area Sewer District is looking forward to a very successful and rewarding working relationship with Insituform Technologies, Inc. We expect the Central Trunk Project to be completed on time and within the approved budget," stated Christoph Dobson, Sacramento Area Sewer District chief.
Insituform CIPP can be manufactured with recycled materials and is installed without digging, which creates little to no disruption to communities and reduces the carbon footprint of the job site. Insituform CIPP, a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe, rehabilitates pipes, reduces infiltration, restores structural integrity and increases flow capacity. The Insituform CIPP process is suited for sewer repair and is used to rehabilitate sanitary sewers, storm sewers and force mains.
