Sewer Line Repair


If you’re experiencing flooding in your home or business, it’s likely that your storm sewer is backed up. When water can’t properly flow through the sewer system, it often causes flooding. This can be a major problem for homeowners and businesses alike.

Luckily, there are ways to prevent this from happening. In many cases, trenchless technology in the form of Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP) lining is an excellent way to rehabilitate your sewer line. It doesn’t require digging large trenches and often makes an excellent option for commercial or residential sewer repair.

Advantages Of CIPP In Storm Drains

CIPP Is an excellent option for storm sewer repairs because it is cost-effective, safe and durable, and doesn’t cause traffic interruptions. Learn more about the benefits of this unique technology implemented by A-Z Underground.


We estimate that customers can save between 50 and 75% by opting for CIPP lining over traditional methods of storm repair. Additionally, this noninvasive process won’t destroy your business, home or landscape. So, CIPP lining does not require reconstruction.

Safe And Durable

Our sewer repair can last up to 50 years and is safe for your family or customers. In fact, you may not need to close your business down at all. Find out if your storm and sewer line can benefit from this time-saving technique.

No Traffic Disruption

If you need to dig up pipes around your home or business, it can cause traffic disruptions. This may cause issues with your local municipality. At the very least, you will have to pull permits in order to bring in a company to perform the necessary excavation for traditional repairs. That is not an issue with CIPP lining, which uses your existing pipes as a guide for the repair materials.


Pipes can become misshapen over time. However, that’s not a barrier to success when it comes to CIPP storm sewer repair. Because the lining conforms to the shape of your original pipes, we can use it to rehabilitate rectangular, oval and other shapes.

No Space For Water Infiltration

The lining seals off cracks and missing portions of the host pipe. This can protect your storm and sewer system in Minneapolis, MN!

How It Works

Our technicians use a comprehensive process to assess and conduct storm sewer repair. We will always use the least invasive option and give you a straight answer when it comes to the likelihood of success. Here are the steps we follow for every job:

  1. Assess the situation: The first thing that our experts do is assess the situation. They will determine what is causing the water to back up and what needs to be done to fix the system.
  2. Remove any debris or blockages: Once they have determined what is causing the flooding, they will remove any debris or blockages to prepare the pipe for the CIPP process.
  3. Install the CIPP lining: we draw the CIPP lining through the existing pipe to avoid extensive excavation.
  4. Check the system: We will check the entire system to ensure that there are no leaks that will result in headaches down the road.

What are the Common Causes?

There are a few common causes of flooding due to a backed-up storm and sewer drain. These include:

  • Debris or blockages in the system: One of the most common causes of flooding is debris or blockages in the storm sewer system. This can be anything from leaves and twigs to construction materials.
  • Improper drainage around the home or business: If the ground around your home or business doesn’t slope away from the building, it can cause water to pool around the sewer and eventually back up into your home or business.
  • Gutters or downspouts pointing towards the drain system: If your gutters or downspouts are pointing towards the sewer, it can cause water to back up into your home or business.
  • Heavy rains: Heavy rains can overwhelm the sewer system and cause water to back up.
  • Melting snow: Melting snow can also overload the sewer system and cause flooding.

What are the Consequences of Not Repairing Your Storm and Sewer System?
