Most pipeline reconstruction programs carried out to date have been crisis driven or reactive instead of system wide approaches to problem solving. Two tools have been devised to change this approach. The development of microcomputer based software for system modelling and evaluation allows an agency to look at its entire system and carefully evaluate, prioritize, and economize the work to be done on underground infrastructure rehabilitation. The second tool is the development of new methods for the correction of problems identified by the models. While the use of trenchless methods for mainline sewer reconstruction is not new, recent developments in trenchless lateral reconstruction and manhole reconstruction gives users the ability to perform system-wide reconstruction.
