Let’s face it, finding and removing excessive inflow and infiltration (I/I) isn’t easy, and it’s not cheap.
With shrinking budgets and continued deterioration of aging infrastructure, there are compelling reasons to support a proactive and intelligent approach to combating I/I. Municipalities often decide to focus their financial resources “in the ground” (i.e. rehabilitating) instead of into planning and investigating . Yet, an analysis-driven strategy can dramatically increase the amount of I/I resolved for a given budget.Manholes. Old, degraded, or leaky manhole structures are major sources of I/I. During storms or snow thaws, large volumes of water flow into systems through faulty manhole covers. Inspections should evaluate both the manhole lid/frame condition and the frame connection for any defects or leak sources.Think of the sewer system like a boat. If you only fix some of the leaks, your boat will still sink. Likewise, groundwater doesn’t discriminate where it enters your system.
