Sewer lining work begins May 30 in Norfolk
NORFOLK, Neb. -- The city of Norfolk will begin sewer repair next week in town.
According to a new release from the city, the work is set to begin Tuesday, May 30, on Omaha Avenue.
The work will take place from Earl May to Milk Specialties over a four-week period. The outside westbound lane from Eighth to 13th streets will be partially closed during the process.
The pipe will be repaired using a cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) method, which will repair damage and deterioration without the pipe being dug up.
The city also warns residents may notice a steam cloud from sewer manholes may be visible during this time.
What also may be noticed is a "resin cooking smell" which the city said will go away once the CIPP is fully cured.
Anyone with questions is asked to contact the city's engineering division.
