FALL/WINTER 2015/2016

Beginning in December 2015, several sections of City sanitary sewer mains are slated to be internally lined. Typically, this process involves insertion of a sleeve inside the sewer installed between existing manholes, then being inflated and cured using steam. This steam will be seen rising from manholes involved in the process and is no cause for alarm. Openings for individual leads to residences are opened immediately after the curing process.
During this procedure, homeowners & business owners must not flush toilets, use bathroom or kitchen sinks, take showers or baths, do laundry, use a dishwasher or any activity that sends waste water into the sanitary sewer system. Until sewer leads have been re-opened, use of these items will cause waste water to back up into your home or place of business.
The procedure is typically completed in a matter of hours, after which use of the sewer system is permitted. The City's contractor, Inland Waters Pollution Control, Inc. will provide prior notice, going door-to-door as to when the sewer repair is to take place. This notice will typically be given one or two days before work begins in a particular area. This construction is needed due to the less than acceptable condition of some existing sewers and will result the removal of roots or other blockages that may currently impair flow of sewage.
The City of Trenton has undertaken several of these re-lining projects in the recent past with excellent results, the most recent in 2011.
Any questions should be directed to the Engineering Department or the
Department of Public Works at 734-675-8251.
