CITY OPENS BIDS FOR KALANIANAOLE SEWER PROJECT

 

            Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced today that Insituform Technologies Inc., was the apparent low bidder at $9.2 million for the repair of the sewer lines along Kalanianaole Highway from Niu Valley to Wailupe Beach Park, along the Kahala Beach coastline.

            Mayor Hannemann said, “We are fulfilling our promise to repair our long-neglected sewer system and wastewater treatment plants with these major capital investments.  These projects are constructed with the money that is collected in sewer fees.  We will continue to devote our resources to improving our overall island infrastructure with these projects.”

            The Kalanianaole project includes the rehabilitation of approximately 7,400 feet of 24-inch and 30-inch pipe with cast-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining; improving approximately 1,700 feet of 8-inch and 10-inch diameter pipe also with CIPP lining; revitalizing 19 manholes with epoxy liners; modifying the entrance and exit manholes and installing a new liner in the Wailupe Stream inverted siphon to improve the flushing action for cleaning; replacing 28 sewer manhole cones/frames and covers; and cleaning 11,800 feet of 24-inch, 30-inch and 36-inch pipe.

            Work is expected to begin in September/October 2009 and be completed in about 18 months.
