Understand What's Underneath™
Addressing even the smallest leaks in your system can generate significant savings. Groundwater seeps into sewer pipes through:
Stormwater can reach levels that will place great strain on sewer pipes, manholes, and catch basins. Inflow enters the sewer system through illegal connections including:
Infiltration reduction techniques include ways to repair the damaged sections of a pipe instead of replacing it entirely. Total replacement is very costly.

Flow Monitoring: Measures the system’s wastewater flow compared to the baseline flow estimate.
Video Pipe Inspection: Televise sewer line/laterals and mark defects including cracks, leaky pipe joints and deteriorated pipes in real-time.
Dye Testing: Determine the integrity of your sewer line connection.
Manhole Inspection: Capture a high resolution, 360 degree scan of the manhole wall. The camera observes any structural defects.
Smoke Testing: Pinpoint sites that allow surface water inflow.
Inflow occurs when stormwater enters the sewer system through rain leaders, basement sump pumps or foundation drains illegally connected to the sewer.
Infiltration occurs when groundwater seeps into sewer pipes through cracks, leaky pipes joints and/or deteriorated manholes. It is most common after a storm due to rise in groundwater.
35% of water entering a water treatment plant is I&I. The treatment of I&I can lead to significant savings on your property or construction site!
