BALTIMORE, MD, March 31, 2014 -- More than 58,000 feet of small-, medium- and large-diameter cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) will soon be installed in residential neighborhoods across the Union Square area of Baltimore City.

SAK Construction, LLC (SAK) has been awarded an $18.8-million contract to oversee the project. The assignment requires SAK to install more than 50,000 feet of CIPP less than 15 inches in diameter; more than 3,500 feet of pipe 18 to 33 inches in diameter; and 3,500 feet of 52-inch pipe.

According to Bob Stier, Atlantic Division general manager, extensive pre-planning has begun on the project, which also requires SAK to rehabilitate manholes, renovate lateral lines and complete spot repairs. The assignment, part of a comprehensive plan that Baltimore is implementing to improve its wastewater system, is scheduled for completion in late 2015.
