Document Type: Book - Manual of Practice


Guidlines for the evaluation and rehabilitation of sanitary sewers are presented. The purpose and scope of sanitary sewer rehabilitation is described. The major emphasis is on filtration and inflow reduction with lesser emphasis being placed on maintaining the structural integrity of the sanitary sewer. Many of the rehabilitation methods presented are applicable for both aspects of sanitary sewer rehabilitation. The structural integrity aspects of sanitary sewer rehabilitation cannot be overemphasized because of the potentially destructive and costly events which often result after the collapse within the sewer system. Physical components such as manholes, pipelines and service connections and materials used are also discussed.
