Sewer Rehab Project Set to Begin

Posted by George 09/18/2015

The City of Mauldin is investing in the future of our sewer infrastructure system by committing $3.1 million dollars to rehabilitate existing sewers and manholes within its priority basins.  The project will reduce inflow and infiltration and repair structural defects in approximately 34 miles of the City’s sewer system.

Work will begin late September of 2015 with cleaning and videoing of sewers to assess the condition of the system and identify needed repairs. The City’s contractors, IPR Southeast INC, Southeast and JAAMCO, may be seen in your neighborhood preforming cleaning and video inspection work.  

The attached map illustrates the areas where the work will be performed.

Sewer systems have a tremendous impact on people’s daily lives and wellbeing and are a vital component of a community’s infrastructure. Mauldin residents can look forward to a well maintained sewer system that will not only provide effective wastewater collection but will have a positive environmental impact for generations to come.

Benefits of maintaining our sewer system includes; preserving valuable infrastructure, minimizing operational and maintenance costs, reducing overflows, and reducing inflow and infiltration – thus preserving capacity.

Please contact Mauldin Public Works at 289-8904 or with any questions, comments, or concerns.    

As the project gets underway, the City will provide regular updates of any impediments to road access or sewer use, although no major interference is expected during this first phase of assessment.
