CHEYENNE, Wyo. (RELEASE) - Starting February 10, 2020 the City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities’ (Board) Dry Creek Sewer Main project will have an upswing of activities.
The $1.7 million sewer main rehabilitation project aims to clean and install a sewer pipe liner. The last remaining section from Seminoe Rd. to Yellowstone Rd. along Dry Creek has a completion goal by the end of February. Most of the project will be next to the greenway on Dry Creek with access remaining open.
Work will continue 24 hours a day with residents noticing at night work lights, steam raising in the air and some noises. Part of the installation process involves an epoxied liner which is cured with steam to stick to the existing sewer pipe. This cost-efficient trenchless technique is like installing a brand-new pipe right inside the old pipeline.
Advancing sewer service reliability for the area, is part of the Board’s initiative to accelerate the renewal of sewer infrastructure. Sewer services should not be affected by the project.
For more information concerning the ongoing project, residents can call the Board’s project manager directly at 307-637-0854.
