Sewer Restoration (CIPP Lining) - Week of 2/26

During the week of February 26th or soon after, the City’s contractor, Insituform, will rehabilitate aging sewers in your neighborhood. Crews will use a method called cured-in-place-pipe lining (CIPP lining) to provide more structurally sound pipes without excavation.

Work is currently scheduled to take place on the following streets (weather permitting):

  • Prescott St.
  • Berkeley St.
  • School St.
  • Avon St.

If work is planned for your street, affected addresses will receive additional notification via flyer and city alert ~24 hours prior. Planned work hours will be included as part of that notification.

Service Alert for Affected Addresses (Day of Work Only): While this work is underway, please limit the use of water going down your drains to an absolute minimum, and do not use washing machines or dishwashers. You may continue to use your toilet as usual.

Odor Associated with CIPP-lining Process

A plastic- or glue-like odor may be detectable while the liner cures. This odor will dissipate quickly once the process is complete.

Other Impacts:

On-street parking restrictions expected on both sides of the work zone. Isolated street closures may be in effect. Onsite crews will provide detour signage and help abutters get in and out of their driveway as needed.

If you have questions, please email or call the Engineering Division at 617-625-6600 ext. 5400.
