Those traveling through Lake Ridge may see work being done during the next few weeks.
The Prince William County Service Authority (PWCSA) has begun working on the sanitary sewer system that runs along Harbor Drive, Dockside Court, Captains Court and Ensign Court.
For the project, workers will line sewer pipes with Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP), which protects the sewer mains from corrosion and tree roots.
The substance also prevents groundwater groundwater from entering the sewer system when it rains, according to a release.
The four-week project, which is not expected to impact traffic, is less costly and disruptive than replacing the pipes.
Sewer pipes typically last 40 years and CIPP can extend their lifespan to 90 years.
PWCSA checks more than 100 sewer lines to decide where CIPP should be added. It has lined almost seven miles since July 2017.
Here is a video from the Service Authority explaining the sewer work that will be done.
