OWASA Sewer Rehabilitation

SEWER LINE REHABILITATION ON KENSINGTON DRIVE STARTING 
 
 
Dear Customer:
  
Starting on or about September 24th, OWASA's contractor, Insituform, will be working along Kensington Drive for about 2 weeks to:
  • rehabilitate existing sewer lines via cured in place pipe (CIPP) lining
  • rehabilitate existing manholes via lining
Crews will be working in the road area from 7AM-7PM but two-way traffic will be maintained. As work progresses throughout the neighborhood nearby homes may be asked to limit their sewer use during the day while work is being performed. Notices with additional information from the contractor will be left on your front door before rehabilitation begins - please check your front door periodically over the next few weeks for updates or check online at OWASA Sewer Rehab.
 
In rare occasions during the lining process, a resin-like odor maybe noticeable. This odor is detectable at even very low levels and will dissipate with exposure to fresh air. This odor may enter a home when  a P-trap (click here to learn about P-traps) has become dry due to lack of use or a plumbing problem. We recommend that you fill all home plumbing drains, especially those that do not get used often, with water. This will fill the trap and prevent the odor from entering your home. Additional information about CIPP rehabilitation of OWASA's sewers can be found online at OWASA Sewer Rehab.
