Storm Sewer Cleaning and Televising Project
The City of Urbana has contracted with Michels Corporation, from Brownsville, WI, to clean and televise 43,300 linear feet of storm sewer pipe to maintain the integrity of the storm sewer system. Beginning Monday, January 29, 2018 Michels Corporation will be performing storm sewer cleaning and inspections at various locations around Urbana.
The cleaning and televising of storm sewers allows the City to ensure that the storm sewer system is functioning properly and to identify deficiencies in the sewer pipes that need to be repaired. This is done with robotic cameras, vacuum excavation equipment, and high-pressure water cleaning equipment.
Maps of the areas affected by sewer cleaning and televising are available at: https://www.urbanaillinois.us/2017-SSCTV.
One or more travel lanes of a street may be closed at the cleaning and televising locations to accommodate the Contractor’s equipment and set-up. Generally, cleaning and televising is completed within one day at the location so any traffic impacts will be temporary.
The Storm Sewer Cleaning and Televising Project is funded by revenues from the Stormwater Utility Fee.
