Infiltration Removal Lateral and Mainline Lining Program
The City of Pembroke Pines is implementing a sanitary sewer line rehabilitation program. For this, the City will begin the sewer lines infiltration removal project in the Pines Village area using the Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) method. The project aims to line the main and lateral pipes of the existing clay sewer with a stronger resin-impregnated felt tube. This project is being completed at no cost to the homeowner.
The work is located within portions of Pines Boulevard, SW 11th Street, SW 68th Ave., and Florida’s Turnpike in the city of Pembroke Pines. (Click here to see a map of this area about undefined about undefined )
The sanitary sewer system repairs will begin on or around MARCH 22, 2021 and last for several weeks in the neighborhood. The work will be performed weekdays, Monday -Friday, between 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM.
Streets, sidewalks, driveways, and easements may be affected by this work. Your cooperation in allowing construction crews to make these necessary repairs is needed and appreciated. Your sanitary sewer service is not expected to be interrupted, and every attempt will be made to minimize any inconvenience to you or your neighbors.
Paint markings may be utilized to identify existing underground utilities and the extent of repairs. These markings may precede the work by up to ten (10) days.
While the work (CIPP) is being performed, your sewer service connection may be temporarily affected. We need your cooperation to avoid backup of the sewer water into residence or business by preventing water from escaping through any drain during the specified time period. However, residents can use limited water to wash their hands and very limited toilet use (1-2 flushes). Residents can resume normal water use after the pipe lining process is complete and crews have left the work area.
Please Take Note: You may detect odors (like plastic or glue) from the new sewer services connections being installed on your street. If you smell this odor inside your home, it is perhaps the result of a dry or broken sewer trap. The sewer trap's purpose is to maintain a water barrier in the pipe to prevent all sewer odor and sewer gases from entering your home.
The work sequence includes, but is not limited to, the following:
• Cleaning of the gravity sewer lines, and televise the pipes to identify defects in the gravity sewer and the service laterals.
• Installing Gravity Sewer CIPP as needed
• Installing Lateral CIPP as needed
• Repairs to the mainline and lateral lining that require excavation may occur on private property, which will require coordination between the Contractor, the CITY, and the homeowner. These activities will be coordinated to minimize impact to the properties.
• Re-televise pipes to verify work completion.
• Sanitary manholes will be rehabilitated, as necessary.
This work will be performed by BLD Services, LLC on behalf of the City of Pembroke Pines. BLD Services will minimize impacts to private property and be required to restore affected areas to existing or better conditions. The cost of the work being done and rehabilitation of any damage to private property is included within the City’s Utility Fund budget for this project and homeowners will incur no expense related to the work.
A reminder (door hanger) will be placed at your residence a few days before work is scheduled to begin on your street.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the City Public Services Department at (954) 518-9070.
