Residents in Ocean City should expect disruptions to the sewer service starting next week, as contractors from Am-Liner East, Inc. begin the Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) method of trenchless pipe relining on the sanitary sewer main.  The rehabilitation work is scheduled to start on March 27, 2017.

A “door hanger” will be placed by contractors at homes which will be affected by the maintenance work, indicating the exact date of their sewer main section rehabilitation.  Work will begin as early as 8 a.m. During this time, the sewer service must be discontinued for a period of approximately 10 hours.  Please note, property owners should draw the amount of water you will need for cooking and personal needs prior to 8 a.m.

Residents are requested not to discharge (flush or drain) into the system until the work is completed.  Access to your residence will not be required and it is not necessary for anyone to be home during the reconstruction process.  If you have a SUMP PUMP that discharges directly to the sanitary sewer it must be disconnected.

Also, due to the potential strong odor that is emitted during the chemical reaction process when the liner is curing,Am-Liner East, Inc. recommends that you pour a cup of water in all sink traps (Laundry tubs, basement sinks, etc.) which may not have been used lately to prevent this odor from entering your residence.  Should a problem arise restoring your service within the time indicated, a representative from AM-Liner East, Inc. will personally contact you at your property to explain the resolution to you. It is imperative that no water be used during this work.

Residents are also urged to cooperative with contractors and park at least 60’ away from any manholes in front of your homes.

The following representatives can be contacted at the numbers provided if you should have any questions. If you have question on the day, AM Liner is working in front of your house, please feel free and contact the crew directly.
