Employees with Insituform Technologies, Inc., located in Chesterfield, installed over 3,700 feet of new ¼-inch durable polyurethane in the sewer mains located along Forum Drive, Broadway, Scenic, Eastwood, and Woodlawn in the Forum neighborhood. Operating the high tech equipment that installs the eight-inch-wide liner, are (front) Bill Schulte, Operator and Ed Nedemeyer, Laborer.
The liners have a resin material that adheres to the old sewer pipes, and are equivalent to installing new PVC pipe that is jointless. The liners, which have a 50-plus-year lifespan, help improve flow, and keep ground water and roots out of the sewer lines. This contractor is working for the City of Rolla Public Works Department.
Matt Frederick, a Tap Cutter with Insituform Technologies, Inc., uses a sophisticated Video Injection (V.I.) crawler (robot) to open sewer lateral connections from homes to the main sewer line on Scenic Drive.
