Insituform wins contracts

Insituform Technologies Inc. has been awarded a $17.9 million contract for the Sacramento Area Sewer District. Work on the project, which is scheduled to begin in June 2009, is expected to be completed in September 2010. Insituform plans to install nearly 45,000 feet of medium- and large-diameter Insituform CIPP under this contract award.

Insituform also has been awarded an additional $5.1 million contract for a sewer pipe rehabilitation project for Nevada’s Clark County Water Reclamation District. Insituform will begin work on this project in June 2009 and will rehabilitate approximately 23,000 feet of 15- to 48-inch diameter sewer pipes. This project is in addition to the company’s recent contract award of $13 million from Clark County for the rehabilitation of 14,000 feet of large-diameter sewer pipes.

Insituform, a pre-qualified contractor with the Clark County Water Reclamation District, will use its Insituform cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) technology for this project. The Insituform CIPP process is a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe with the capability to rehabilitate pipes ranging in diameter from 6 to 96 inches.
