The Butler Area Sewer Authority has entered into a $4.9 million contract with Insituform Technologies, Inc. (ITI), of Chesterfield, Missouri for the rehabilitation of sanitary sewers and manholes in apportion of Butler Township.  The Northwest Area Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project includes cleaning, televising and lining approximately 59,000 linear feet of mainline sewers and 8,500 linear feet of sewer laterals, the installation of approximately 490 inspection tees on the sewer laterals, and the rehabilitation of numerous manholes.  All of the sewer work will occur in public rights-of-way or sewer easements.  Temporary access approvals may be obtained from some private property owners for easier access to the public sewers. 

The project area is primarily the service area of the former Northwest Sanitary Sewer System Authority, which is generally located north of New Castle Road between Remil Avenue and the new Butler Crossing shopping center.  The sewer lines running through Alameda Park from West Penn Street Extension to Route 422 will also be part of the rehabilitation project.  

The project will be conducted in phases, starting with the pre-construction video taping of the existing surface conditions within the project area beginning the week of October 19, 2009.  This video taping will be performed by Industrial Photographic Services as a subcontractor to ITI.  Other subcontractors to ITI that will be working on the project over the course of the next year include:  Robinson Pipe Cleaning Company, Fleming-Walker, Inc., Early Construction, Inc., and State Pipe Services, Inc.  It is expected that all contractor and subcontractor vehicles will be identified by company logos, and that all workers will carry proper identification.  If you are unsure of whether any workers in your neighborhood are a part of this project, please feel free to call the Authority at (724) 282-1978 to confirm if any of these subcontractors are working in your neighborhood. 

According to the tentative project construction schedule submitted by ITI, work on this project is expected to be completed by the end of October 2010.  The Authority will finance this project by a low interest loan from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST).
