Whitpain Township Joins Epoxytec’s Growing DIY Program

Whitpain Township, located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania is rated as one of the best places to live in the Philadelphia Suburbs. In efforts to continue lowering costs and improving time management for their township’s Public Works Department, Whitpain has  joined a network of Epoxytec Do-It-Yourself municipalities for rehab and lining of their sewer infrastructure.

Epoxytec’s DIY program is available for municipal crews seeking to rehab and installing protective lining for collection system manholes and access structures. Whitpain Township’s Sewer Department, led by Sewer Superintendent  Gus Belmont and his Assistant Superintendent Ron Fricker, is exceptionally proactive. The department maintains roughly 150 miles of underground sanitary sewers and seven pumping stations. Whitpain completes the majority of their repairs in-house utilizing the city’s maintenance crew and resources. They will begin using Epoxytec’s highly advanced, easily applied products in the Spring of 2015.  The system choice will be the Epoxytec Structural Epoxy Lining system for manhole rehab.
