Cape Gazette NEWS FRIDAY. OCTOBER 21- MONDAY. OCTOBER 24. 2011 17 Cured-in-place process expected to reduce disruption By Henry J.-Evans Jr. hevans At an estimated cost of more than $3 million, replacing utility lines underneath Lewes! Bay Av- enue and resurfacing the street is called the most expensive proj- ect of its type in city history. Details of how the project would proceed were made pub- lic at an Oct. 13 joint meeting of Lewes Mayor and City Council and Board of Public Works. "You may not agree with the decisions, but you have to agree with the decision-making process;' Lewes Mayor Jim Ford Said before the panels delved in- to project specifics. The process has involved numerous meetings with Bay Avenue residents con- cerned about disruption the proj- ect would cause and the road's appearance when complete. Ford said sewer-line installa- tion would probably begin early next year and take six weeks. He said depending on how that goes, water line installation could begin in February. Ford said street paving would be bid as a 90-day contract and could start in March. He estimated the project could be complete by the end of June. Sanitary sewer and water lines The Board of Public Works is overseeing installation of the street's sanitary sewer and water lines. Darrin Gordon, BPW gen- eral manager, said sewer lines would be installed using cured- in-place technology, which elimi- nates an open trench. He said a fiberglass sock is in- serted into the existing pipe, which is then pressurized using water or steam. The fiberglass is cured and forms a lining that is tight-fitting, seamless and corro- sion-resistant. The cured-in- place method would give the sewer line an added 50-year lifes- pan, Gordon said. He said costs of using cured- in-place technology, which takes less time, could make the project Continued on page 19 Cancer Continued from page 16 written, the study calls for 32 vol- unteers, but they could be people who have lived in the area for a matter of months or days, he said. Dnathan Thornburg of RTI In- ternational, the company per- forming the study, said the vol- unteer requirements could change depending on the num- ber of people who sign up. As for using the basic urine sample instead of a more de- tailed analysis, he said, originally the study was planned to meas- ure environmental factors; the biological analysis was added at the last minute. Zak said he supports all efforts by state officials to fight cancer, but there are other conditions that may be linked to long-term chronic exposure to chemicals. These include stroke, infant death and asthma among others. Most of all, he said, a small study compounded by the fact that the Indian River power plant is cleaning up and lowering emissions may not accurately re- flect the biological impact on hu- mans. "I'm afraid that it will be in- nocuous enough in this study that we won't hear anything else about it," he said. Thornburg said he has begun circulating fliers at community centers and public buildings throughout the Millsboro, Dags- boro. Long Neck and Frankford area. Volunteers for the study must be: at least 18 years old and live near the Indian River power plant; able to walk unassisted; able to speak, read, write, answer questions and complete surveys in English; live in the same resi- dence for the next 12 months during the sampling period; and be available for home visits over four consecutive days. One four-day sampling will be held in 2011; a second will take place in 2012.
