SERVICES INTERNALLY REINSTATED
The City of Madison has incorporated an annual CIPP program into their budget. They have identified failing and aging pipes across the City that are good candidates for lining. Pontiac Trail was one of two projects that the City decided to proceed with in 2021. Pontiac Trail is a residential area with mature trees that the city did not want to disturb. The road surfaces were also in good condition, which meant open-cut replacement would cause costly and unnecessary reconstruction.
Construction began in September and was completed in under three months. FER-PAL was able to successfully reinstate all 53 small services that were located on the site, which allowed the city to minimize excavation and restoration costs while adding significant lifespan to the existing watermain.
The timing of this project was critical. It needed to be completed within the fall to prevent cold weather service disruptions with the temporary above ground water system. FER-PAL was able to ensure service was maintained without interruption. Once the main was reinstated the City’s roads department fully restored the areas surrounding the access pits.
