Sewer rehab project renews contract with Insituform for CIPP

Sponsored by

SAINT LOUIS, MO, June 10, 2010 -- Insituform Technologies Inc. announced today the renewal of its term contract with the City of London, Ontario, Canada. Valued at US$6.2 million, this is the largest trenchless sewer rehabilitation project in the City's history. Nearly US$2 million of the 2010 project is being funded through Canada's Stimulus Funding Infrastructure Renewal Program. Including the successful completion of a US$5.9 million term contract in 2009, Insituform has been awarded over US$12 million in work with the City of London in the past two years.

Ken Foster, Insituform's Vice President-Canada, said, "Our work on this project helps the City of London meet its rehabilitation goals with the least amount of inconvenience to its citizens. We have a long history with the City of London and look forward to continuing to provide experienced project management and high-quality rehabilitation solutions."

Work on this project is expected to be completed by December 2010. Insituform® CIPP will be used to rehabilitate nearly 25 miles of wastewater pipelines up to 48-inches in diameter.

City reports indicate the use of various trenchless technologies, including pipeline relining and repair, have resulted in cost savings of US$81 million over the last five years. "The City currently uses trenchless technologies for sewer relining and watermain relining. The benefits are many - cost savings, because the road doesn't need to be excavated; minimized disruption (one day as opposed to four months); and the environmental benefits of not requiring new materials," said City of London, Division Manger-Construction Administration, Justin Lawrence.

Insituform® CIPP is a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe used to rehabilitate wastewater pipelines ranging in diameter from six to 96 inches. Rehabilitating wastewater 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.
