Teams in Midland will begin cleaning the city’s sewer lines starting Monday, October 31, in preparation for a city-wide sewerage project. The work carried out forms part of Midland’s Concept 5 Sewer Improvement Plan which aims to improve sewage infrastructure in response to historic flooding.
The cleansing starts in the northwest corner of the city and then moves in quadrants from west to east until all areas are completed. Once each area has been cleaned, workers return to install the liner to repair existing cracks, reduce inflow and infiltration, and extend the overall system life.

The entire project is expected to take 12 months and will require road closures in areas where crews are working.
