Sewer Pipeline Rehabilitation

Situation

After nearly a century of continual use, the City of Eldon’s sanitary sewer lines had deteriorated significantly, leading to major problems with root penetration, inflow, and infiltration.

Challenge

Made of clay tile with joints every three to four feet, the 100-year old pipeline was in great need of repair. But the city wanted to avoid the high cost and disruption that would come with digging up and replacing the infrastructure with prefabricated PVC pipe. 

Solved

SAK used cured-in-place pipe technology to rehabilitate the pipe without digging or major disruption to Eldon residents.
