Insituform wins $7.7M sewer rehabilitation contract in Hartford, CT

Sponsored by

June 3, 2009 -- Insituform Technologies Inc. has been awarded an additional $7.7 million sewer contract from the Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) in Hartford, Connecticut for the rehabilitation of over 200,000 linear feet of 6- to 30-inch sewer lines using Insituform ® cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). This award is in addition to the $10.3 million contract MDC signed with Insituform last November.

Crews will install Insituform® CIPP using the air inversion steam cure (AISC) method, which uses air to invert the CIPP tube and then steam to cure the resin. Using the AISC method can reduce the amount of water used during installation by nearly 95 percent. The project is expected to begin in June 2009 and be completed by December 2010.

"We are pleased to continue our relationship with MDC with this additional project. Our experienced crews and management team are dedicated to exceeding MDC's expectations on every project," said Jim Newkirk, General Manager for Insituform's East Region.

Insituform ® CIPP is a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe used to rehabilitate pipes ranging in diameter from 6 to 96 inches. Suitable for repair of sanitary sewers, storm sewers and force mains, Insituform® CIPP extends the life of existing infrastructure by approximately 100 years. Rehabilitating sewer pipelines with Insituform® CIPP reduces infiltration, restores structural integrity and increases flow capacity without disruption to communities, typically at a lower cost than dig and replace solutions.

Insituform Technologies Inc. is a leading worldwide provider of proprietary technologies and services for rehabilitating sewer, water, energy and mining piping systems and the corrosion protection of industrial pipelines.
