KALANIANAOLE SEWER PROJECT SET TO BEGIN

 

            (Monday, May 10, 2010) --- Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced today that a sewer renovation project will begin May 11 in East Honolulu along Kalanianaole Highway from Niu Valley to Wailupe Beach Park and along the Kahala Beach coastline.

The work will be performed by Insituform Technologies Inc., the low bidder at $9.2 million.

            “We’re fulfilling our promise to repair our long-neglected sewer system and wastewater treatment plants with these major capital investments,” Hannemann said.  “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 projects like this.”

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

            There will be some unavoidable traffic impacts associated with the work­.  The project is expected to be completed by April 2011.
