As sewers age, cracks and breaches can develop, so it is imperative that these are addressed to prevent water from leaking. Damaged sewer pipes can overflow and sewage can leak into the natural environment.
The first stage of the project consists of inspecting sewers to identify structural deficiencies and sources of inflow and infiltration. This stage includes performing smoke testing, manhole inspections and mapping. Then, over the next few years the city will rehabilitate the damaged lines.
City streets often encounter decades of wear and tear, making the need for a smooth safe ride crucial to motorists. Diamond grinding was first used as part of an engineered system to preserve pavement in 1965. Asphalt is ground and grooved just as done with concrete pavement. It is frequently performed to improve smoothness, reduce imperfections, add texture and friction, and repair the profile while increasing drainage.
Asphalt rejuvenation focuses on suspending the current age of paved surfaces. Ideal candidates for treatment include roads that have been paved within the past five years. By applying a rejuvenation product to surfaces, aging can be delayed 5-7 years, reducing wear and surface cracking, sealing out moisture, and preventing oxidation.
