" Rehabilitation of the sewer involves inserting a flexible lining inside an existing pipe that has deteriorated due to age and other factors. The lining is cured (or hardened) in place and forms a new smooth water-tight seal inside the pipe that improves structural strength and flow and extends the pipe life for up to 50 years.
" The process is competed quickly (a few hours) and usually does not require any excavation in the street or disruption normally associated with regular replacement or reconstruction.
" The process is less costly than full reconstruction.
