Sewer Televising & Cleaning in your area

Notice to Residents

Re: Televising and Cleaning of Sewers

The City of Utica has awarded a contract to televise and clean the sewer lines in your area.  Through a selective bidding process, this contract was awarded to Pipetek Infrastructure Services of Michigan.  Work on your street or easement will commence within 7-days upon receipt of this Notice during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.

Because a number of sewer manholes are located in rear yard easements, it may be necessary for the contractor to use some properties as an access to these manholes. If you are one of these yard owners, we ask your permission and cooperation so the contractor may expediently perform their tasks and move on.

In order to clean the sewers, a high-pressure water jet will be used.  The water will be supplied from existing fire hydrants.  The natural sediment of the hydrant lines may be disturbed causing discoloration of the water.  This does not in any way contaminate the water.  Allowing your water to settle for one to two hours with minimum use and then running cold water for one to two minutes will clear any discoloration.  If there is any discoloration DO NOT DO LAUNDRY.  During work on the sewer some residents may or may not experience water and/or odor coming from your drains or toilets.  We ask that you keep the toilet lids closed, weighted and if possible, place a towel between the lid and seat to reduce possible water spray from the toilet bowl.  To reduce the chance of odor, please add water to all floor drains.  During and/or immediately following the cleaning process the sewer will be televised to evaluate their condition.

Your cooperation during this work is greatly appreciated.  Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this work, please do not hesitate to contact the City of Utica at 586-731-6110 or Pipetek Infrastructure Services at 734-921-3054

Very truly yours,

City of Utica
