CIPP project recognized among 2018’s best

Trenchless crew preps to install cured in place pipe in Guam

Michels received honorable mention in Trenchless Technology magazine’s 2018 Project of the Year competition for the North Area Interceptor Phase 9 project. The project consisted of rehabilitating high-capacity regional sanitary sewer facilities in the St. Paul-Minneapolis metropolitan area.

Michels installed cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liners to rehabilitate 3,866 feet of 96-inch (8-foot) diameter and 90 feet of 72-inch diameter pipe. The sanitary sewer serves all northwestern suburbs.

The North Area Interceptor Phase 9 project included construction of a 5,100-foot temporary conveyance system to maintain wastewater services throughout the project. The system was designed to convey an average daily flow of 25,000 gallons per minute of effluent and a peak flow of 52,000 gallons per minute.
