GNHWPCA Large Diameter Pipe Cleaning Program :

GNHWPCA’s large diameter sewer pipes range from 30 inches in diameter to 84 inches in diameter. Most of these large diameter sewer pipes are main interceptor sewers located in the City of New Haven that transport combined flow to the ESWPAF for treatment. Periodic cleaning of these interceptor sewers is required to remove sand, grit, rocks, and other heavy debris that can accumulate in the pipe over time



GNHWPCA Pipe Lining Program :

Pipe lining is a trenchless rehabilitation process used to repair existing pipelines.
Prior to lining the existing sewer, crews clean the pipe using high pressure water hoses and video cameras to inspect the pipe condition. They may also conduct dye testing to confirm connections between buildings and sewers. As such, residents may see activities related to the sewer relining for several weeks leading up to the actual lining.
