Rehabilitation of Water Services and Laterals

Rehabilitation of failing sanitary and water systems is a high priority for many municipalities with major projects underway.  The sanitary laterals and water services that connect homes and businesses to the mainline sewer and water systems are an integral element of the infrastructure; however, the condition and replacement/rehabilitation of these services often gets ignored despite the fact that failing laterals can be responsible for a significant amount of the inflow and infiltration (I&I), leakage and other problems affecting the systems.  This workshop includes: an overview of the problems that can be encountered in laterals and water services; the importance of understanding existing conditions; current industry practice with regards to condition assessment/inspection rehabilitation/replacement technologies; case studies.
