NIAGARA FALLS, ONT. — The Stamford Interceptor Trunk Sanitary Sewer Phase 1 Project for the Region of Niagara, Ont., a Granite Inliner project, has been awarded the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Gas Tax Award, recognizing excellence in the use of federal gas funds.
The project, a sewer rehabilitation project in the city of Niagara Falls, was completed by LiquiForce, Granite Inliner’s Canadian-based rehabilitation services company, using a no-dig trenchless pipeline rehabilitation technology, also known as cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining.
CIPP extends the life of hydraulically adequate sewers at a lower cost than excavating and replacing sewers in the streets and is less disruptive to vehicular and pedestrian traffic during construction while minimizing the environmental impact, indicates a release issued by the company.
LiquiForce rehabilitated 7,600 feet of new and existing 42-inch and 48-inch diameter sanitary sewer main and 23 manholes bypassing the entire system including three pumping stations.
“Congratulations to this year’s winner, Niagara Region,” said Canada’s Minister of Infrastructure and Communities Catherine McKenna in a statement. “You combined innovation and environmentally-friendly engineering and supported long-term planning with your sewer pipeline project. And you did a great job keeping the impact on the busy Niagara Falls tourism sector minimal.”
