The City of Edgerton will complete a sanitary sewer rehabilitation project in 2023 to continue the work started in 2021. The goal is to reduce the amount of Inflow and Infiltration (I&I) of stormwater into the sanitary sewer system. I&I increases costs for customers by unnecessarily treating rain or storm runoff.
The Project will take place East of the 2021 CDBG Project, consisting of Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP), Manhole Patches, and Point Repairs. The project area covers the sewer line between Nelson Street and Martin Street, from E. 5th Street to W. 4th Street.
The City of Edgerton has contracted Tetra Tech Inc., Consulting Engineers to evaluate the sanitary sewer system. The project involves the inspection of manholes and sanitary sewer lines using various nonintrusive/nondestructive testing methods.
Crews will identify and record defects for rehabilitation that will reduce the potential for dry weather system backups and wet weather overflows. Once this evaluation is complete, the City will solicit bids for a company to complete the CIPP and other repairs.
Funding for this project comes from a Community Development Block Grant and the Sewer Fund.
