Sewer Pipe Replacement Oklahoma City, OK
Sewer pipes are built to last around 40 years. This process used to be expensive and complicated, took days, and sometimes weeks as the old pipe had to be excavated from the ground. Excavation disturbs the soil in a garden and would often need to extend into the home as workers had to get at a pipe underneath the slab of your home.
In Oklahoma City, people experienced what it is like for an aging sewer pipes system to fail. Around the mid-1980s, the city’s entire 2,200-mile pipe system needed to be replaced. The situation was not easy. According to the EPA, Oklahoma City faced widespread sewer line failures that led to daily sanitary overflow backups into homes and businesses. This resulted in thousands of dollars in property damage, declining resident’s satisfaction, and major sanitary and health concerns. They needed a major sewer pipe replacement plan, with a small-city budget.
All across America, where many sewer systems were built after World War II, cities have had to develop long-term sewer pipe replacement plans. The old way to construct pipes turned a commodity that we take for granted into a major problem.
In the case of Oklahoma City, they decided to implement a 100-year plan to renew the entire sewer pipe system. The program establishes that the city will renew 1% of the sewer line system every year. The result is that every 100 years the system will be completely overhauled. Oklahoma City allocated $600 million dollars spread over one hundred years for this massive sewer pipe replacement project.
