Pipe rehabilitator announces $CDN20 million contract
Mon, 3 September 2012
Sanexen Environmental Services was recently awarded a $CDN20 million ($US 19.58 million) contract by the City of Montreal for the structural rehabilitation of approximately 60,000 ft of distribution watermains.
Under the contract, AQUA-PIPE will be responsible for the structural rehabilitation of the watermains located on approximately 75 streets in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors throughout the city centre and the 15 of the city’s 19 boroughs.
In order to reduce the number of breaks and leaks in their water system, in 2008 the City of Montreal started systematically rehabilitating their watermains with structural cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liners.
In the last four years the city has rehabilitated over 150,000 ft of small diameter distribution watermains with the use of AQUA-PIPE, a structural CIPP liner.
