Insituform Technologies, Inc. was awarded a $10.3M 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). Insituform® CIPP 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" to 30". 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, Insituform will perform sewer pipe rehabilitation services in all eight municipalities that comprise the MDC jurisdiction.
"We are excited to again have the opportunity to work with MDC. We had a very positive experience working with MDC in 2007, and we hope to continue this relationship well into the future. We also look forward to developing additional projects and relationships in this region." said David Goldwater, Business Development Manager for Insituform's Atlantic Region.
