Portsmouth-University Park Sewer Repair

Updated January 9, 2020 

Environmental Services completed the Portsmouth-University Park Sewer Repair Project in November 2019. Approximately 7,700 feet, or almost one and a half miles, of public sewers in the Portsmouth and University Park neighborhoods were repaired or replaced. Many of the existing sewer pipes were 80 years old and in deteriorating condition. This project is one of many that protects the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.

What Was Included?

By coordinating with property owners, businesses, and residents in the project area, Environmental Services completed the following work:

  • Inspected, cleaned, and repaired 4,708 linear feet of mainline public sewer pipes and 1,098 linear feet of sewer connections to properties.
  • Inspected and repaired or replaced 47 manholes.
  • Cleared roots and flushed debris from approximately 7,000 linear feet of public sewer pipes and service laterals.
  • Repaired 2,315 linear feet of mainline public sewer pipes using Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining (CIPP).
