Cast in Place Pipe Work

Beginning Monday, November 3, 2014, PEC Corporation from Helena, Montana, under contract with the Baker City Public Works Department will be lining several wastewater main lines in town. The process being used is "Cast in Place Pipe" (CIPP). Benefits of this process include no excavation or surface restoration necessary, 50+ year design life, project completion with minimal disruption of service or traffic, and considerable cost savings vs. the traditional excavation method of pipeline rehabilitation or replacement.  

The work is expected to take up to two weeks. Work will be completed in various areas of Baker City (see list below). Cleaning and line inspection activities were recently completed.   

Your cooperation and patience during this project is appreciated.  If you have any questions, please contact Baker City Public Works (541) 523-2046 or (541) 524-2020.
