Work on sewer line may briefly disrupt service
LAWRENCEVILLE - Work is beginning on a major sewer line improvement on Lawrenceville's east side, and residents there may be asked to refrain from using water or sewer for brief periods of time.

"During this process, the company contracted to complete the work will be hanging notices on doors of residences in the immediate area of the upgrade," Lawrenceville Mayor Don Wagner said in a press release. "The notices request residents not to use water or sewer during the time listed. The plan is for only a short interruption of service per household."

Wagner termed the interruption "small inconveniences during major improvement" to the city's infrastructure.

According to the press release:

• Any homeowner that uses their water during the lining process could potentially flood their own house through their sewer system.

• Regardless of the time constraints being offered, any stoppage of sewer flow would allow for settlement of solids, and those could create their own blockage at a later time.

• A liner would block their sewer for a few hours, but introducing sewer flow to the lateral could be effectively creating a surcharge in the lateral system, which is not what it is designed for, and could potentially cause damages to the lateral system, depending on the system's state or condition.

• The liner itself could be damaged during the curing process. Low temperature water will interact with the resin curing and has significant potential to damage the liner installation process, and could result in total failure of the lining all together.

"Due to these potential hazards, we are respectfully requesting that our door hanger be accepted as is," the company says. "We would also like to point out that we only plan to have sewer out of service for a period of a few hours each time."

The company will provide 24-hour minimum notice of the work to be performed to all buildings affected via the door hanger.

"Our goal would be immediate reinstatement of all sewers at the earliest possible time during the lining process," says a company press release.

Those with questions are asked to contact city hall at 943-2116.
