Residential Sanitary Sewer Lining Program

The City of Naperville has been lining residential sanitary sewer service laterals since 1998 as part of a broader effort to eliminate infiltration and inflow of rain water and ground water from the sanitary sewer system.

Work will take place this year in Kings Terrace and Pembroke Greens, Maplebrook and Hawthorn Square and Laird Woods. 

 

Traffic and Parking

This type of work requires large trucks and other equipment. City crews and contractors will place safety cones to keep traffic out of the immediate work area. Work will progress from house to house and will not affect large areas at any one time. Street closures are very rare. In most cases, traffic flow and parking will be only minimally affected.

Utility Service

The only interruption you may experience is during the actual lining process. You will be asked to not use any water. This includes flushing toilets, doing laundry, showers, etc. for up to four hours duration. We will attempt to notify all affected customers and give enough notice to avoid significant inconvenience.

If you received a notice that the project was going to start on a specific date, and it appears nothing was done, please contact the Water Utility at (630) 420-6137.

Requirements

You do not need to be home while this work occurs. All the work is done by the outside cleanout and the city's sanitary sewer main.  If access is needed, a city representative will contact you. The contractor will start work at 7 a.m. and stop by 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting. 

The contractor will inform you when the work is finished, either verbally or by leaving written notification.

Restoration

This type of work usually causes very little disruption to pavement and landscape. Any damage that does occur will be professionally restored after completion of each step of the work. 

 

Following Completion of Work

The newly lined portion of your sanitary sewer service will require little to no maintenance. However, the unlined portion may still need periodic maintenance.

After work is complete, if you smell an odd odor, please call the Water Utility at (630) 420-6137. 

If you wish, you can contact Performance Pipelining (the City's contractor) at (815) 482-0080 to discuss lining additional sanitary sewer service. Any additional lining that you have done would require an agreement between you and Performance Pipelining. The City of Naperville does not require or pay for additional lining.
