Wisconsin board approves contract for sewer lining project

Village board members in Somers, Wisconsin, voted to contract with Musson Bros. of Brookfield for $376,302 to conduct sewer lining projects.  The purpose of the upgrades is to prevent inflow and infiltration of groundwater from entering the sewer and the lift station.

At a recent work session, village trustees said the project is long overdue. Some area sewer mains date back to the mid-1950s.

“We’ve got to get this started,” trustee Gregg Sinnen says.

 

Ohio city to solicit bids for I&I project

The city of Mansfield, Ohio, will advertise bids for the 2018 Sanitary Sewer Inflow and Infiltration Reduction project. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has ordered the city to perform improvements to the sanitary sewer collections system, as it can’t handle the amount of stormwater it receives.

The city has identified three critical areas where about 18,000 feet of the city’s sanitary sewer system will be lined with a felt liner.

The total cost of the project is $1.3 million. A portion of that will be covered by a $500,000 grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission, with the remaining cost paid from the city’s sanitary sewer fund.
