Letting off some steam

An Ivis Inc. employee monitors the steam process on a manhole rehabilitation last week.

The Town of Morinville has been rehabilitating a number of its older manholes over the past few years by having a high-tech polymer liner installed instead of tearing up the streets to use conventional methods..

The multilayer liner is cured to the manhole walls with an epoxy set by steam.

The Town of Morinville is doing 18 manholes this year at a cost of approximately $169,000 considerably less than conventional rip and repair techniques.
