What to Expect

  • Crews cleared the existing easement in preparation for the project.
  • Construction vehicles entering existing easements from main roads.
  • Crews will be on scaffolding installing a sock-like lining inside an existing pipe through manholes. The sock-like lining will require a large truck like photographed on the other side of the postcard. The sock-like pipe liner will extend the wastewater pipe's service life.
  • Black above-ground pipes will be installed to continue service to customers while wastewater pipes are temporarily out of service for relining.
    • If you see or suspect that wastewater is leaking out of the pipes, please call 311 or 704-336-7600 and say or select wastewater emergency.
  • Construction activities on school property will occur when the school is closed including possible weekend work.

There are no planned water or wastewater service disruptions for this project.  Any unplanned outages will be treated as emergencies and repaired immediately.

Customers shouldn't notice any odors from this project. During the actual relining process customers in the immediate area may smell a brief odor outside. If you smell odors in your building please pour a gallon of water into floor drains, toilets, and sinks.

All work will be on CLTWater easements or road right-of-ways. Customers will have access to driveways unless notified in advance. Street parking may be restricted when construction is in the immediate area. 

Crews clean inside wastewater pipes and install a sock-like lining inside an existing pipe through manholes to extend the use life of pipes.

Property owners will be notified in advance. CLTWater and contractors are working with businesses to minimize disruption.
