County Board Set to Approve Manhole Rehabilitation

The County Board is set to vote to approve a contract that would rehabilitate Arlington’s manholes and large commercial meter water vaults.

County staff is recommending that the $709,315 contract with Capitol Heights, Md.-based Midas Utilities LLC be approved.

AM-Liner East Inc., which was contracted out for similar work in previous years in a different Arlington neighborhood, was outbid by Midas Utilities by just under $260,000.

The county’s Capital Improvement Program funds the infiltration and inflow program that rehabilitates manholes and sanitary sewer main lining.

Rehabilitating means coating “the inside of manholes to prevent groundwater from infiltrating into the sewer system.” The county rehabs about 200 manholes each year under this program, and will also be “rehabilitating and sealing water vaults.”
