G.L. Howard, Inc. has been contracted to replace sewer pipes throughout the numbered streets for the recent sewer upgrades. A section of Fifth Street was previously lined. The lining, however, will not work in this section due to an excess of groundwater.
G.L. Howard will dig at both ends of the pipe, insert a series of metal rods, and pull new piping through, replacing the old. This procedure allows residents to continue using their sewer systems without interruption, and minimizes the need to dig up the entire length of the piping.
