The City has hired a contractor, Performance Pipeline Technologies, to clean and inspect wastewater collection system (sewer) pipes in the Lower Riviera neighborhood starting October 30, 2017.

During pipeline inspections, the City’s contractor will be using a hydro-vacuum cleaning truck, a Closed Circuit Television Inspection van, and other equipment to complete their work. 

In general, work will be conducted Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For some locations, work may be performed outside of those hours to avoid impacts to traffic on busy streets. Businesses and residents near each inspection location will receive 72-hour notice prior to the start of the inspection. Short-term parking restrictions may be required.


The purpose of the project is to inspect the condition of the City’s wastewater collection system pipes, identify areas requiring maintenance or repair, and ensure reliability of the system. In addition, the video captured by the Contractor will help the City assess the condition of the private sewer lateral connections (wyes) and identify defects that could lead to future private or public sewer overflows.


Schedule: October 30, 2017 through January 2018

Location: Lower Rivera Neighborhood Total Project Cost: $84,673

Geez. Is THAT what that horrid, ear-piercing grinding noise was I heard yesterday? I hope all the workers have state-of-the-art earplugs.
