A city northeast of Memphis started a major sewer rehabilitation project. Dyersburg, Tennessee began work last week on updating and repairing sewer mains throughout the city. Officials decided to use the Cured-In-Place-Pipe, or CIPP method to make these repairs as they are more cost-effective, time-saving, and there is no digging necessary.
In all, approximately 2,000 feet of 15-inch sewer pipe would be rehabilitated and roughly 25,000-30,000 feet of total sewer pipe would be repaired using the CIPP method. By lining these pipes, the sewer system will be like new and will have another 50+ years of life left in them.
The rehab is part of the National Disaster Resilience Grant, funding for disaster recovery and long-term community resilience, the state received in 2016. All work is expected to be completed this year.
For those not aware, CIPP process is a resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth or other materials suitable for resin impregnation and is inverted or pulled into a damaged pipe. It is usually done from the upstream access point. Little to no digging is involved in this trenchless process, making for a potentially more cost-effective and less disruptive method than traditional “dig and replace” pipe repair methods.
