Sewer Lining Rehabilitation Scheduled (Beginning Apr. 11)

April 08, 2022

LYNCHBURG, Va. – Beginning Monday, April 11, and continuing for approximately 45 days, Monday - Friday during daylight hours, Lynchburg Water Resources (LWR) will work with Prism Contractors & Engineers to rehabilitate approximately 12,000 linear feet of sanitary/storm sewer pipes and 30 manholes throughout the City via trenchless liner installation methods. The purpose of the project is to protect and improve Lynchburg’s sewer system while helping prevent costly sewer backups, overflows, and digging repairs that can result if left unmaintained.  (NOTE: LWR is asking that personal vehicles and other items be removed from these sanitary and storm sewer areas ahead of time prior to the Monday, April 11 start date.)
