The paper explains that sewer systems are made up of collection and treatment systems in North America. The paper explains that pipe strength and stiffness is extremely important in the design of these sewers and the system should be designed for 100 years. The paper discusses how manhole infiltration can cause serious problems, therefore, routine inspections must be conducted to prevent sewer overflows from aging systems, ultimately improving the watershed water quality. The paper also discusses how manholes made of brick and block are extremely susceptible to displacement and joint separation in locations where unstable soils exist.
From the Paper:"Sewer systems are made up of collection and treatment systems in North America. Pipe strength and stiffness is extremely important in the design of these sewers. The system should be designed for 100 years at the minimum. There are two types of corrugated steel pipes, helical, which the corrugations and seams run helically around a pipe; and annular, where the corrugations are annularly surrounding the pipe. Manhole infiltration can..."
