STORM PIPE REHABILITATION PROGRAM rehabilitates storm pipes and culverts within the City that are reaching the end of their useful life before failure. Trenchless Technology (TT) enables the City to avoid costly and disruptive road excavation through a variety of methods like cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) and pipe bursting. 

There is a new method for rehabilitating culverts called in situ geopolymer mortar lining. The BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure first used the method for a large culvert crossing on Highway 97 at Polson Park. The Infrastructure Department believes that further investment in this technology will increase the longevity of existing culverts without having to replace them.

SANITARY PIPE REHABILITATION PROGRAM has many cost advantages over conventional replacement. Trenchless Technology (TT) can be used to rehabilitate sewer piping over a shorter period of time and with less disruptions to the public when compared to conventional open-excavation pipe replacement. The two most widely used trenchless methods for sanitary sewers are cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) and pipe bursting.

Rehabilitation is required due to the poor pipe condition of much of the City’s buried sanitary pipes. The CIPP program is an essential component of the cost containment strategy of the City’s infrastructure assets. Much of the planned work will be on 48th Avenue east of 27th Street and 31st Street, as the disruption is minimal compared to methods that require extensive digging.

PIPE VIDEO INSPECTION PROGRAM annual project funds the inspection of storm and sanitary sewer mains in conjunction with the closed-circuit television (CCTV) video inspection system.

The City has 462 kilometers of sanitary and storm sewer pipes, much of which consists of older material reaching the end of its estimated service life.  An assessment of pipe condition is necessary to prioritize infrastructure replacement projects with the budgets available, as well as improve upon preventative maintenance strategies such as root cutting or main flushing programs.
