Cocoa Utilities Dept. to begin 2018 sewer pipe repairs on March 12

The Cocoa Utilities Department will continue with an on-going plan to repair sewage pipes using a method known as cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) on March 12, 2018. CIPP is a trenchless rehabilitation methods used to repair existing pipelines. CIPP is a jointless, seamless, pipe-within-a-pipe that rehabilitates existing pipes.

Since CIPP is a trenchless process it results in less disruption to vehicle traffic. During the process a resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth is inverted or pulled into a damaged pipe. Once the slipline cures the result is a new pipe inside the old pipe.

Residents and businesses affected by this project will receive 48-hours notice that work is taking place in their area. The Utilities Department anticipates that no streets will be completely blocked during this project. However you can expect partial blockages so use caution and watch for warning signs and flagmen. If you have any questions about this project call 321-433-8705 or email
