Beginning Monday, Jan. 25, and continuing for approximately 45 days, week-days and during daylight hours, Lynchburg Water Resources will work with a contractor to rehabilitate approximately 7,000 linear feet of sanitary/storm sewer pipes throughout the City via trenchless cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) flexible liner installation methods.

The purpose of the project is to protect and improve Lynchburg’s sewer system while helping pre-vent costly sewer backups, overflows and digging repairs that can result if left unmaintained.

Crews will follow social distancing guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and have been instructed on how to per-form their work in order to minimize exposure to COVID-19.

Work will take place on properties at the following locations:

Apache Lane, Candlers Mountain Road, Catalina Place, Chesterfield Road, Fourth Street, Hayes Street, Hill Street, Hines Circle, Jackson Street, Lakeside Drive, Monroe Street, Northwood Circle, Polk Street, Ravenwood Drive, Rhonda Road, Sandusky Drive, Second Street, Taylor Street, Third Street, Wards Road and Westhaven Place.

Residents may see crews accessing the sewer system through manholes and inlets on or near their property. There should be no disturbance of property or impacts to traffic. For more information, call Lynchburg Water Resources at 434-455-4250.
