Insituform Wins $10-M CIPP Project

Insituform Technologies, Inc. was awarded a $10.3-million sewer contract in November from the Metropolitan Development Commission (MDC) for the rehabilitation of 270,000 linear feet of sewer lines using Insituform® cured-in-place pipe (CIPP).

This pipe is a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe that extends the life of existing infrastructure by 100 years.

Work on the project is slated to begin in December and will include line diameters ranging from 6 inches to 30 inches. The project duration is expected to last approximately 12 months. The MDC provides sewer and drinking water services to the Connecticut municipalities of Bloomfield, East Hartford, Hartford, Newington, Rocky Hill, West Hartford, Wethersfield, and Windsor, as well as portions of other towns in the region. Over the duration of the project, the company will perform sewer pipe rehabilitation services in all eight municipalities that comprise the MDC jurisdiction.
