Cured-in-place pipe lining seals the dealCured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is one of several sewer rehabilitation methods used to repair leaking or structurally unsound existing pipelines. Little to no digging is involved in this trenchless process, making for a more cost-effective, environmentally friendly process that is completed more quickly and with fewer impacts and disruptions than pipe replacement.

Mayor Barry visits sewer rehabilitation project

Mayor Barry visits sewer rehabilitation projectMayor Megan Barry recently visited Clean Water Nashville’s 28th Avenue Rehabilitation – Area 1 project site to learn more about how Nashville’s aging sewer infrastructure is being renewed. As pictured, B.J. Kersteins of Insituform Technologies, Inc. (the construction contractor for this work) shows Mayor Barry a cured-in-place pipe liner. The pipe liner is inserted in the sewer to renew the system without excavating streets. Repairing sewers in this way extends the life of the system and addresses downstream overflows by reducing the amount of rainwater that infiltrates the system.

Lakewood office reflects communications priority

BECAUSE Clean Water Nashville utilizes public resources and may impact neighborhoods, businesses and a wide range of civic enterprises, community outreach is an important component of Clean Water Nashville.

CWN follows communications plan protocol on every project to identify neighborhood stakeholders before work starts so that all parties are aware of the purpose, impact and work schedule. Depending on the scope of the project, CWN conducts public community meetings, issues notification letters to residents and business owners, briefs Council members and follows up directly with homeowners to address inquiries.

Lakewood Infrastructure Improvement Project led CWN to open a project office in the former Lakewood City Hall on Old Hickory Boulevard to house the construction team and provide neighbors with information and assistance. It is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The office is a reliable place for neighbors to engage officials about the work that will result in modernizing Lakewood’s water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. Extensive construction to replace and relocate aging sewer lines and water mains and to add storm sewers requires digging up and repaving many streets in the community.

CWN is coordinating information with many agencies, including the U.S. Postal Service, Metro Police and Fire, Metro Nashville Public Schools and waste collection companies to ensure that neighborhood life remains functional until the project is completed.
