BEACON – The City of Beacon has started to rehabilitate portions of its sanitary sewer system through a process known as slip lining.
Beginning with Catherine Street on Thursday, sewer pipes are relined with a resin that hardens to fortify the pipe rather than dig it up and replace it with new pipe. The new liner reduces the pipe diameter by only five percent so flow is not affected, city officials said.
The process requires an interruption of residential sewer service from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the following streets:  Dutchess Terrace on Monday, December 14; Kent on Tuesday, December 15, Wodenethe on Wednesday, December 16, and Sargent on December 17.
