The sanitary sewer system of New Orleans consists of 1,600 miles of lateral sewer pipes starting at 8 inches in diameter. The design of the sewer system started in 1898, and today like any sewer system continual maintenance and repairs are done routinely. The Sewer System Evaluation and Rehabilitation Program ( SSERP) is coordinating with the Depart of Public Works for the City of New Orleans to use trenchless methods for pipe repairs to cut costs and eliminate as many inconveniences that may arise with trenching methods. New Orleans sewer service rates are one of the most reasonable in the whole nation, the goal is to keep those rates down. Without digging up the streets and yards the city will save time, money, and keep the taxpayers happy. Many municipalities like New Orleans are taking the TRENCHLESS approach. Perma-Liner™ pipe lining systems such as Perma-Main™ Continuous Top Gun are widely used in many municipalities. Many are finding that the city can save repair and maintenance costs using trenchless methods. Many municipalities are also adding trenchless methods to in-house service. Cutting cost on labor, the city is saving by investing with Perma-Liner™ systems and training to be able to use in-house labor instead of subcontracting a job out. Pipelining is saving money for everyone. If you like saving money and would like to know more on Perma-Liner™ and trenchless technology, contact us today!
