Saving Taxpayers’ Money By Using Trenchless Technology

Posted · Add Comment

Municipal Sewer SolutionsThe City of Naperville is committed to eliminating sanitary sewer backups that are caused by heavy rainfall. Backups occur during heavy rains because water enters the sanitary sewer system through cracks and other defects in sewer mains, manholes, and residential service laterals.

Residential service laterals are a major point of entry for unwanted rainwater and groundwater. Naperville is using cured-in-place-pipelining (CIPP) to create a strong, durable, and seamless lining inside of the existing residential service laterals. This three-step process involves very little excavation. Trenchless no-dig technologies are more cost-effective and less disruptive than conventional excavation.

The City of Naperville’s Department of Public Utilities-Water is now in the tenth year of a comprehensive sewer rehabilitation program using trenchless technology to line their sewer systems. Sanitary sewer rehabilitation is already paying off. The ongoing elimination of groundwater infiltration has resulted in a measurable decrease in incoming flow at the Springbrook wastewater treatment plant, which translates into lower operating costs for the facility.
