Webinar: Pipe Soil Structure: The Progressive Loss of Soil Caused by Relentless Infiltration
Infiltration: an enemy to the collection system and the rate payer. If not addressed, infiltration can ruin the collection system. As infiltration enters a pipe or manhole through faulty joints or defects, it also brings with it soils fines from outside the pipe. The progressive breakdown of the pipe soil structure is the eventual cause for system failure causing pipe disintegration, reduced capacity, costly repairs, hazardous sinkholes and potential injury or danger to the community.
Where do you start in the fight against infiltration? This webinar will layout the consequences of infiltration and the value benefit to eliminate is starting with identifying the problem, discovering a solution, and implementing the right trenchless method.
This 60-minute learning event will be outlined as followed:
- Consequences of Infiltration & Inflow (I&I)
- Breakdown of Pipe Soil Structure, Progressive Loss of Soil
- Value of Investment Loss and Consequences
- How to Identify Problem Areas in the Collection System - Case Studies
- Action plans: Where do you start?
- Next Steps and I&I Solutions
