The City of West Linn is proceeding with the next phase of a multi-year sewer rehabilitation project which will preserve and extend the life of sewer lines throughout the City system.
This year’s project includes rehabilitation in your neighborhood. The project consists of rehabilitating old deteriorating sanitary sewer pipelines by lining the pipes with a cured in place liner which is a proven method to reduce water infiltration and restore structural integrity to the pipe. This system minimizes inconvenience to the public versus traditional excavation and replacement resulting in minimal digging, less traffic disruptions, and faster project completion.
These improvements are being made as part of a planned capital improvement program with no additional expense to adjacent property owners. This year’s work is scheduled to begin on November 12, 2012 and is anticipated to be complete by January 15th, 2013. Michels Pipe Services has been selected as the contractor to do the rehabilitation work. As the project contractor, Michels will be responsible for all aspects of the work including safety, access, cleanliness, etc.

Due to the nature of the work, there may be some traffic control/access changes during construction. Traffic disruptions will typically be short in duration as the rehabilitation process moves from one sewer access point to the next. There will be some construction noise (mainly from bypass pumping) that will be kept to a minimum during all operations. In addition, there can be a chemical-like odor during construction but it is a normal part of the cured in place process and is perfectly safe.
Michels and the City appreciate your patience while this important construction project is being completed. Should you have any questions and concerns, please feel free to contact:
