I & I Mitigation: Rehabilitation of Sewer Laterals and Sealing Their Connection to the Main

LMK Technologies, located in Ottawa, Illinois is recognized by municipalities and consulting engineers as a high quality innovator of trenchless renewal systems for sewer laterals, mainlines and manholes.  LMK has an extensive world-wide patent library relating to trenchless pipe renewal technologies.

Cities that are trying to reduce costs associated with excessive Infiltration/Inflow (I&I) are finding that rehabilitating manholes and city owned sewer pipes alone does not always produce the results they desire because the failing laterals remain an unmitigated source of clear water inflow. The focus of this webinar is on renewing lateral services using CIPP technology with special emphasis on restoring the connection of the lateral to the mainline sewer in accordance with the applicable ASTM standard (F2561).

Join Rick Gage, Vice president of Business Development, who will walk attendees through the history of lateral lining and its current place in today’s industry.  We will also discuss the following topics in regards to ASTM F2561:

  • Accessing the Lateral through an Outside Cleanout
  • Materials Used in Main-to-Lateral CIPP
  • Sealing the Annular Space between the Main and Host Pipe
  • Inserting, Inflating and Inverting the Liner
  • Curing and Final Inspection

Don't miss out on this educational opportunity for renewing and sealing the sewer system. Watch this Trenchless Technology webinar from the comfort of your own office. We hope to see you online this Wednesday!

Cartridge Style PVC Restrained Joints: Efficiency, Performance and Sustainability

The benefits of trenchless technology are well understood by all in our industry – more cost-effective, and less disruptive to streets, driveways, and landscaping. However, what’s less clear to many engineers and city officials faced with a wide selection of materials and processes is the impact material selection has on system performance, risk, installation requirements and the environment. This seminar will present the engineering considerations involved in selecting PVC pipe for water/sewer trenchless installation projects, focusing on “cartridge-style” assembly considerations, structural and flow performance, pressure-handling capacity, and compatibility with existing systems. Design and key decision criteria will also be presented to assist in defining what type of thermoplastic pipe is best suited for a particular trenchless application. There will be two case studies, one water distribution and one gravity sewer, to review the design, financial, installation, and operational considerations to meet owner/municipality requirements. We will discuss the three primary cartridge style joining methods: Restrained Joint Integral Bell, Coupled Pipe, and Flush Joint PVC pipe.

Sewer Laterals

Sewer Laterals are service pipes that connect buildings to sewer mainlines. Laterals convey sanitary sewage, but often extraneous storm water also. The November 7 webinar will focus on the following sewer lateral topics:

  • Methods, technologies and current practices for location and inspection of sewer laterals
  • Methods and case studies of lateral rehabilitation and renewal technologies
  • Examples of the existing lateral rehabilitation programs, results and lessons learned

Industry experts from the NASTT membership will be presenting this complimentary we binar on November 7:

Dr. Jason Lueke, Associated Engineering
Dr. Ray Sterling, Professor Emeritus, Louisiana Tech University

Drinking Water Pipeline Rehabilitation Design Considerations for Polyurea Spin-Cast Lining/Spray-in-Place Pipe (SIPP)

Municipalities and private water utilities are frequently challenged with a rapidly deteriorating infrastructure and are constrained by limited funding sources and budgets. To meet this growing challenge, there is a strong desire among many water infrastructure owners to utilize more trenchless rehabilitation solutions. To do so effectively, the utility owner or engineering firm must clearly understand the limitations, trade-offs and effectiveness of the various rehabilitation solutions. This webinar will provide an overview of Polyurea Spin-Cast Lining also known as Spray-in-Place Pipe (SIPP). This rehabilitation technique can provide significant environmental, social and economic benefits over open cut dig and replacement solutions. The webinar will focus on the proper design and installation of this solution as either a barrier coating to protect against future internal corrosion or as an AWWA class IV structural lining to achieve specific long-term structural performance characteristics for various pipe types, deterioration levels and operating conditions. We will also discuss up-to-date carbon footprint comparisons of various rehabilitation methods, effective cleaning techniques and proactive condition assessment techniques as they relate to polyurea SIPP lining.

Preserving the Underground Infrastructure at Miami-Dade

Communities large and small face a delicate balance improving their underground sanitary collection system and reducing flow to their treatment plant while being good stewards of the rate-payer and protecting quality of life. The intrusion of groundwater and soil fines are sabotaging system efficiencies causing the plant to treat twice the volume, increasing sanitary sewer overflows and polluting our clean water streams.

There is no silver-bullet, but there is one strategy that pays high-dividends. Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department has 20 years of data supporting every 1 dollar they spend to reduce I&I receives a 2 ˝ dollar return. Learn directly from Miami-Dade’s Chief of Wastewater Collection and Transmission how chemical grout is their low-cost, high-reward practice that helps reduce 127 MGD flow to their treatment operations.

With Miami-Dade’s Rod Lovett, subject matter experts Stuart Rome of Cues and Daniel Magill of Avanti contribute expertise to the educational content of this 1 HR webinar hosted by the editor of Trenchless Technology magazine. Join us and earn .1 CEU for participating in this live learning event.

Presenters (Subject Matter Experts):

  • Rod Lovett, Chief of Wastewater Collection and Transmission, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer
