The Hammer is preparing for Sewer Development

A City near Toronto is in the process of preparing for future growth by developing a sturdy infrastructure.  The imminent construction of underground pipeline is named The Centennial Sewer Project, as this is where the project is located.  Interestingly, the City of Hamilton, known as ‘The Hammer’ is built on a mountain.  Therein lies the challenge, as the right sizing of pipe will be elemental to the capacity of the sewer line.  Due to the fact that the city is built on a slope, there are drops of up to 150 feet.  The project will be two-fold as the first phase will attend to the lower elevation and the second phase will focus on the upper elevation.  This pipeline installation will be approximately 5 miles in length and depths of up to 300 feet underground.  It has been carefully coordinated to be a viable structure and allow for the expected growth for at least 20 years to come.

The sewer line will ultimately tie in to a utility with a long history. The first length of the Hamilton sewer was constructed in 1859. Its first sewage disposal plant was built in 1896.  Currently, there are approximately 200 miles of sewer lines rehabilitated by Cure in Place Pipeline.  Here at Perma-Liner Industries, we have some information we’d like to share with you regarding the latest innovations in this particular method of pipelining.
