Utility Improvement Notice Graphic

The City of Monroe Water Resources Department will be conducting sewer pipe bursting beginning February 20 through mid-June. The locations impacted will include Parker Street, Bay Street, Bickett Street, Crescent Street, Ridgewood Drive, and Falling Tree Lane. This project will impact approximately 5,000 feet of sewer main. 

Pipe Bursting is an innovative technology where a new pipe can be installed within the old pipe, service laterals, and other system components. Repairing defects and replacing older pipe during this process protects the sewer system from excessive rainfall intrusion (inflow and infiltration), thereby preventing sewer overflows and overloading at the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

During each pipe bursting operation, uniformed Water Resources Department staff members are present and available to answer any questions. There is typically no risk or impact to homes or businesses, and if you have any questions please ask one of the crew members onsite in the area.   

“Pipe bursting is a cost-saving, trenchless technology that replaces older sewer system infrastructures,” says Scott Clark, Monroe’s Water Resources Director.
