Volunteers Needed for No-Charge Sewer Lateral Video Inspection

In the spring of 2021, Village of Bible Hill completed a Sanitary Sewer Study which found that there are many sanitary laterals that serve residences and business which were originally fabricated of Tar and Paper materials which formed a “No-Corrode” pipe. These laterals were installed between 1957 and 1962. 

To maintain continued service to the residents and businesses, the Village has initiated an engineering assessment of No-Corrode laterals, which will consider a random selection of laterals (approximately 40) across the study area to determine their existing condition. The intent is to video each selected lateral with CCTV camera technology. Once videoed, the information will be evaluated to
determine the current conditions of the laterals. 

It is anticipated that video access to laterals will be from residences and businesses where cleanout ports or wyes to the sanitary lateral are readily accessible. The Village would like to undertake the lateral inspections through the winter of 2021/2022. This information will ultimately lead to a capital plan which identifies where and when intervention is required to repair or replace components of existing lateral services.

The target area of work is mainly on Pictou Road, Main Street, and College Road, with consideration on side streets including: Farnham Rd, Windsor Ave, Albert Ave, Lloyd Ct, Ryland Ave, Avon St, Riverside Ave, Vimy Rd, Hillcrest Ave,
Blanchard Ave, Hillside Ave, MacIntosh Ave, Bigney Ave, Wright Ave, Johnson Ave, Dunromin Ave, East Court Rd, Armstrong Ave, and Edward Ave. 

The Village is looking for volunteer home or business owners to assist in this initiative. Volunteers will benefit from understanding sewer lateral conditions on their private property. If you have interest and you know that your sanitary lateral is accessible, please contact the Village of Bible Hill office.
