What We Look For and Assess
issues that can cause excessive treatment plant volumes in normal times and dangerous overflows during wet periods
from tree roots, garbage, “flushable” wipes, calcite and other debris or obstructions that could cause backups
An increasingly large problem in municipal systems. over 50% of all sanitary sewer system overflows are caused by accumulations of fats, oils and greases discharged to it from the preparation and serving of food.
Significant sags or bellies in the main; cracks and holes; protruding lateral pipes; misaligned, offset and open pipe joints; and collapsing pipe sections all impact the soundness and efficiency of municipal and large residential systems.
These are a growing issue. Existing sewer systems are overloaded due to new sewer hook-ups, underground water infiltration, and illegal roof and yard drain connections.
Caused by several factors, including the condition of the pipe system itself, natural phenomena such as earth movement and rain, and incorrect usage of the system by the public.
Assessing sewer pipes and other structures before and after nearby construction occurs can assess if any condition change did or did not occur due to impact, vibration or soil shift.
