Rostraver Township Sewage Authority Selects OBIC Products for Manhole Rehabilitation

Rostraver Township Sewage Authority in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, was struggling with finding solutions for an aging sewer system. One neighborhood in particular was dealing with flooding on streets and in basements every time wet weather events occurred in the area.

When the Township Sewage Authority received a grant to rehabilitate the sewer systems, they chose an OBIC certified installer to work on several manholes in the affected neighborhood. Ann Scott, manager at the Rostraver Township Sewage Authority, was immediately impressed with OBIC products. “I was fascinated with the end result,” she said, “the ease of installation, the environmentally friendly product, the entire process!”

Advanced Rehabilitation Technology was the OBIC certified installer that Ann worked with for the manhole rehabilitation project. “My experience with the installers was great,’ she noted.

Levi Diehl and Jake Harrison were the ART installers who worked with Ann throughout the project. Their dedication to customer service, both with her and residents in the neighborhood, were what impressed Ann the most.  “I went over to the site after Levi and Jake had completed power washing the manhole,” said Ann. “They took their time and explained the entire installation process while completing the work at-hand, even answering all my questions.” She went on to note that the manhole they were working on was located on a residential property. “Levi and Jake were neat and conscientious of the property and the owner.”

Although the rehabilitation project in Rostraver Township is complete, Ann does not think they have seen the last of their partnership with ART. The Township Authority was so impressed with the performance of OBIC products and the efficiency of the ART installers that they are already looking at future projects. “I believe OBIC products will assist the Rostraver Township Sewage Authority in maintaining our systems in the area and reducing I&I,” said Ann. “I would recommend utilizing the same product in future manhole rehabilitation projects.” She went on to note that they would be considering OBIC products for larger wastewater structure rehabilitation in the future as well.
