Manhattan residents may notice steam coming from manhole covers throughout the city.

That’s because the city today is beginning annual cured-in-place pipe sewer lining projects. The annual maintenance is done to help slow the deterioration of sanitary sewers as they age. The city uses the trenchless pipe rehab technology that installs a resin-infused tube into a deteriorated line. This process results in a seamless, jointless “pipe-within-a-pipe” with a smooth, continuous inner surface.

Some temporary traffic disruptions should be expected.

Notable project areas include Dickens Avenue, the intersections of Claflin and Denison, Denison and Hunting, Stewart Court, Grandview Terrace, Wildwood Lane, Brighton Road, South Evergreen, the 1600 block of Houston and the Pierre Street alley. Work also will take place at Amherst and Research, Bethany Drive, Highland Drive, Cherry Hill, Wildcat Ridge, Griffith Park and the CICO Park area.
