Document Type: Book - Manual of Practice


This Manual provides both theoretical and pracctical guidelines for the design and construction of gravity sanitary sewers. The initial chapter introduces the organization and administrative phases of the sanitary sewer project. Subsequent chapters are presented in a sequence detailing the parameters necessary to establish the design criteria, complete the design and award a construction contract. The Manual concludes with a discussion of the commonly used methods of sanitary sewer construction The manual is intended to be of practical use to the designer of a gravity sanitary sewer system and is based upon the experience of engineers in the field of sanitary sewer structural and hydraulic design. Charts, illustrations, and example problem solutions are used liberally throughout to reinforce the text.
