Insituform Awarded Term Contract by Austin, Texas

Contract Valued at Up to $11.7 Million

The city of Austin, Texas, has awarded a three-year term contract to Insituform Technologies Inc. to rehabilitate sewer pipelines. The contract is valued at up to $11.7 million, and includes using cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) in the city.

This term contract plays a significant and strategic role in restoring the structural integrity of the City’s collection system while reducing inflow and infiltration and eliminating sanitary sewer overflows. Insituform has already received its first work order valued at $2.3 million under this contract. In compliance with the city’s policy, Insituform’s management team will utilize minority-owned and women-owned businesses throughout the project.

Insituform CIPP is a jointless pipe-within-a-pipe used to rehabilitate wastewater pipelines ranging in diameter from six to 96 inches. Rehabilitating wastewater pipelines with Insituform CIPP reduces infiltration, restores structural integrity and increases flow capacity without disruption to communities, typically at a lower cost than dig and replace solutions.
